TitleLetter from Reverend Theophilus Blumhardt, Basel
Extent1 item
Date1833
DescriptionDated 29 December. Includes comments on Gobat, Gerber and Metzger. Two missionary candidates for Abyssinia have been chosen, Henry Knoth and Theophilus Volz; Gobat would like them to go to Egypt next summer; they are to be presented for Lutheran ordination before coming to London. 'Weitbrecht, Kruckeberg, Leopold [Leupolt] etc.' in North India wish to get married; as Mrs Corrie of Calcutta wishes to take some 'Christian sisters of Germany' back to India with her, would it not be convenient to send four Christian females as teachers for the Indian schools enabling them 'to pay their passage with a moderate salary and to give in this way to our Brethren time and opportunity enough to make their mutual acquaintance and their own mutual choice'.
