This book is a translation of the 1747 account of the founding of the Georgia colony, Ebenezer, written by Johannes Agustus Urlsperger of Germany. Urlsperger argues there are four chief causes for colonies to be established: 'Removal of those inconvenient to the kingdom'; 'Fruitfulness of the Land'; 'Trade'; and 'Defense:' The Salzburgers settled in Ebenezer after being recruited by General James Oglethorpe.
