1767. He possibly did so through policy, the author of the Noticia
also being a Jesuit. The mention of the "good and bad" principle
as prevailing among the Pericues and Cotchimes is emphatically
refuted by Baegert. Of the many more proofs that the Nachrichten
is not a translation of the Noticia which might be given, one will
suffice. To Father Baegert students may be thankful for having
the philological interest to preserve and explain a specimen of the
Waicuri language, something that does not appear in Venegas.
The Nachrichten of Baegert has served to correct the over-favor-
able description of conditions in California. Not only is it the
work of one who actually resided in Lower California, but it is
also an independent and original contribution.4

This day, May 5th, I have found amongst a lot of old German
religious books Sketches of Travels (Reise-Skizzen) by R. A.
Moelling, published at Galveston, octavo, pp. 384. There is no
indication of the year when this book was published; it evidently
was not copyrighted.
From pages 1-16 are chapters relating to a trip from Galveston
to New Orleans with a description of the latter.
The author occupied several pulpits while in the city. He went
north as far as Minnesota, preaching as he went. There are many
excellent portraits of ministers of his sect and a view of the Falls
of Minnehaha. He traveled all over the Eastern States, then
went to Indiana and Ohio, at which time he writes a poem on
the Mason and Dixon line; he then returns to New Orleans by
way of the river, and' gives an account of the Lutheran ministers
at that time preaching in the city.
Pages 328-343 are descriptive of this second visit; in the pages
'For numerous other examples of inaccurate reports on California con-
sult pages 313-358 of the Nachrickten.
