TitleLetter from Reverend Albert Ostertag, Basel
Extent1 item
Date1839
DescriptionDated 19 January. Has received letter from Maier, student at the [CMS] Islington Institution, recounting some of his scruples concerning the Church of England; this is a development of earlier trouble with Eipper and Schreiner; 'there is some difficulty in their being at once stationed among a multitude of parties in London, striving against each other, their own distrust is awakened and increases by hearing the cries of the dissenting parties against the Church'; asks that Maier may be advised in London before he returns to Basel; if he does resign Basel might consider sending him to the United States to serve some of the German colonists.
