Pastorius, who was associated with the Frankfurt Company, was a leader of the colony. He wrote a letter describing his journey to America and settlement at Germantown, which was published in Governor Pennypacker's "Settlement of Germantown" pp. 133-151 in Proceedings of the Pennsylvania German Society, Vol. IX.
Pastorius came earlier in 1683 to prepare for the larger group that was emigrating to Pennsylvania the same year. Shortly after the later group arrived, Germantown was founded on 24 October 1683.
