The Sophienburg Museum in New Braunfels
But, in the essay from Benjamin Gilbert, entitled "The Germans in Texas" (1909), I read the next statement:
"Soergel in his work, Neueste Nachrichten aus Texas, Eisleben, 1847, says that the author of the work entitled, Texas Rathgeber fur Auswanderer von Kuno Damian Schutz, Vereinsbeamten in Neu Braunfels, Weisbaden, 1847, had never sent foot in Texas..."
Is this true? I cannot believe this affirmation because there are several references about the travel from Schutz to Texas, and finally to Peru. I haven't been able to get neither the Soergel's book nor the Schutz's book so I couldn't contrast this hypothesis. Can anyone of the kind readers help me with this issue?
