Drakenburg Palace, May 1747.
The origin of the aboriginal human inhabitants of the islands of New Jerusalem was discussed at the spring meeting of the Drakenburg Acadamy Of Sciences. The two leading theories are original settlement by the Lost Tribes of Israel, and by survivors from Atlantis.
Discussion rapidly became heated, and we are sorry to report that the meeting was adjourned without a final settlement of the matter under discussion. Followers of natural philosophy will, on the other hand, doubtless be delighted to learn that Professor von Sauerwitz is expected to make a full recovery from his wounds.
