Comment:
First German to bring his family to Texas. He sent letters with glowing descriptions of land and opportunity in Texas back to his native Oldenburg (Lower Saxony). His writings sparked widespread interest in immigration to Texas among farmers and artisans who saw their future limited in Germany, as well as among ambitious German noblemen who sought to promote colonization projects. Reise nach Texas (“Journey to Texas”), published in Bremen in 1834, included Ernst’s commentary on the land and climate. He wrote in similar terms to a colleague in Houston in 1838.
