The Promise

Considerant recruited colonists from Europe by appeals to identity with the Chosen People and their desire for a promised land:

The redeeming idea sleeps in the Captivity of Eqypt. Let it awaken! Believe, and the land of realization, the Promised Land is ours. One strong resolution, one act of collective faith and this country is conquered.

I bring you the news of salvation. I show you the way, and I propose the inauguration. Let us only unite in purpose, and little as the outside world may dream of it, the new social era will be founded.
