Title: Vicar Pfanner
Description: Letter from Vicar Pfanner published in the Courier of Alsace on August 27, 1846. The newspaper has requested the truth about the settlement in Texas. He states that it is a beautiful country, but hot and dry and while some crops do well, people fare poorly because of fevers. He claims that the population of Texas is drawn from the dregs of humanity. He recommends that people not consider settling in Texas. [page 1] [Text in German.]
