Bremen 20 July 1847

Your Excellency will receive here enclosed list of passengers per Beckerath, Landed by Captain Kahle, who I beg leave to introduce and solicits in his favour the kind perception of Y.E. and the Government Officers under Y. E. command.

I had the honour the receive the kind letter of Y. E. private secretary Mr. O’Halloran being testimony of the property and good conduct of the German Immigrants and encouraging any endeavour to promote the happiness of such as may desirer to follow in procuring them the opportunity To do so.

I have accordingly chartered two ships of the larger class of this port, which will convey six hundred useful settlers to your shores, one halve of will onboard the present ship and the other half will follow next month on the ship Gellert.
Captain Siedenberg, accompanies by Revered Philip Oster of the Lutheran Church of Posen desire of forming a village in a appropriate part of Y. E. Province.

The Present expedition comprises a party of 31 miners with their families, Farmers, shepherds, Mechanics and Agriculturist. And among the Baden passengers two architect, W. Wenzel who has been employed in Rebuilding city of Hamburg, and Mr. Geibert who was instrumental in completing the railway from Copenhagen to Rothschild. He wishes to be employed I a simular manner in South Australia and to lay before Y. E. his testaments and designs.

I also beg leave to recommend to Y.E. kind patronage two individuals Wetzel and Kornhard, who carry with them a printing establishment to print a German paper to serve as an interpreter of Y.E. Government and to be a medium of intelligence between the English and German population of the Colony, having advertisement in both languages.

Should they need some assistance on the part of the Government to open a list of subscribers I ask that Y.E. will grant the same in consideration of the office, which that powerful engine will have in promoting German Emigration to South Australia.

I have thankfully received the official returns of which Y.E. predecessor ordered a copy to be transmitted to me, which are immediately republished here for the information of a numerous public interested in the subject and soliciting a kind Continuance of the simular favour.

I have the honour to be
Your Excellency’s
Most obedient servant
Edward Delius
