  • Description

Henry Newman's Salzburger Letterbooks contains correspondence between Henry Newman and Samuel Urlsperger, a German Lutheran minister in Ausburg. These two men were heavily involved in the settlement of the Salzburgers in Georgia. Their letters, which contain both inward and outward correspondence, provide a unique journal of the settlement of Salzburg and colonial life in Georgia.
