HeraldZeitung 125 years ago 1872 Translators Carl and Ethel Saur Retrospective Review of the founding and Life of the Neu Braunfelser Zeitung by Ferd Lindheimer Toward the end of the year 1851 a sizable number of local residents desired to establish a German newspaper here My friend Georg Dietz formerly the coeditor of the Neu Yorker Staatszeitung was in Frederiscksburg and it was believed that he would accept the editorship of the new local paper When this did not work out a Mr Lockmann from San Antonio was selected as editor His sudden death ended that hope At a meeting of local citizens in early 1852 A Rossy Pastor Ervendberg and Ferd Lindheimer were nominated as candidates for the editorship of the paper Ferd Lindheimer was elected by unanimous vote and accepted the obligatory terms of the agreement The money needed to purchase the needed printing equipment and supplies was to be collected through subscriptions actually The form for the receipt which 1 was to give for these subscriptions read as follows Received from Mr the amount of X Dollars as his subscription towards the raising of a fund for the publication of a German paper in this The total bill for the equipment and supplies amounted to including freight The amount from subscriptions totaled plus that from a benefit concert altogether This left a deficit of which 1 provided out of my own pocket When after many delays the first issue of the Neu Braunfelser Zeitung was printed in November 1852 many of those who had contributed money to establish the Zeitung demanded that this money be applied to individual subscriptions advertising and press work These original contributions could never be considered to be for shares or stock in the newspaper as the wording of the receipt shows this clearly This is a concise story of the basic events involved with the founding of the Neu Branfelser Zeitung 1 have revealed these to show how difficult it is to gain support for a publicgood undertaking through voluntary financial contributions I owe little gratitude to the public for their support in establishing the Neu Braunfelser Zeitung except for these three gentlemen F Moureau A
