Dedication (translation)

Joseph Eiboeck, <em>Die Deutschen von Iowa</em>: Dedication


As a sign of my deep tribute and utmost gratitude, I dedicate this book to the true and esteemed patrons of my 41 years as editor and publisher of newspapers in Iowa, and especially to those Germans who assisted me during the last 27 years with words and deeds in my efforts to maintain a German newspaper in the capital of Iowa, working and struggling alongside me throughout it all to promote German traditions and interests as well as citizens’ inalienable individual rights.
