So Gerold could not establish so complete a printery as I wished, without going into expenses based on an uncertainty.
We could furnish our printery properly now and pay our old debts.
Then there were new expenses to repair the printery and keep it in some sort of order.
It was to be published at that time, and was in type when the fire came and left not a vestige of the printery.
At this time a former workman of my younger brother Karl, a man named Strohhofer, commenced a printery.
When the lad was fourteen years old, we find him setting type in his father's printery.
This, and perhaps the printery, he planned to establish in Niedau, because there both workers and property were cheaper.
At fourteen years of age, he was apprenticed to a printery and served until he was of age.
