Promotional literature passed out in Switzerland to attract migration to South Carolina Townships.

Colonel Jean Pierre Purry
Swiss Castle

In the summer of 1731, Colonel Jean Pierre Purry drew up a little pamphlet in Charles Town, South Carolina, "A Description of the Province of South Carolina..," This promotional-tract literature exalted the superior merits of South Carolina to any other place in the world. After enumerating the vast wealth of goods and livestock produced by the colony, Purry then spent the better part of three pages explaining the dangers of living in Carolina. He met each of the problems directly (climate, sickness, mosquitoes, rattlesnakes). On Purry's return to Switzerland, his "Description of South Carolina" was published in the Neuchatel newspaper as well as pamphlet form. The pamphlet was disseminated throughout Switzerland, and set in motion what distraught cantonal officials derisively labeled the "Rabies Carolinae" (Carolina madness).

Hans Jacob Riemensperger

On the 28th day of February, 1739/40 in Charles Town, South Carolina, a passport was issued by The Highly-Esteemed and Meritorious Gentlemen, William Bull, Knight, First-in-Command for the English King in the Province of South Carolina, to Hans Jacob Riemensperger and Hans Caspar Gallister, voluntary agents of His Royal Majesty. They distributed their brochure throughout Germany and Switzerland in order to perform service to satisfaction: That is, to perform the heartfelt task of leading out immigrants successfully.

Johannes Tobler

On January 5 (O.S.), 16 (N.S.), in the year 1753, with the intention of attracting more settlers from eastern Switzerland to South Carolina, Johannes Tobler, a former Landeshauptmann of the half-canton of Appenzell-Ausser Rhoden, Switzerland, wrote "A Description of Carolina" for the 1754 issue of an almanac, Alter und verbesserter Schreib-Calender which was designed for customers in the cantons of Glarus, Appenzell, and Graubunden (or Grisons). His description is of a far better quality than those of some of the propaganda pamphlets of the time for or against emigration to America.
