Title: Vicar Pfanner
Description: Letter from Vicar Pfanner published in the Courier of Alsace on September 1, 1846. The newspaper has requested the truth about the settlement in Texas. Pfanner discusses how he had to leave his own people for Mexico, which is where he is writing from since he claims letters sent from Texas get destroyed if they aren’t positive. Pfanner’s opinion is that Texas only offers opportunities for already well-to-do settlers. Note from the publisher at end describes their obligation to publish a note refuting the content of Pfanner’s letter. [page 1] [Translated from the original German.]
