8Exhibit C 25—27. 
“ The Royal General Commission began its activity later, but 
since 1906 has been energetically pursuing the settlement of agricul­ 
tural labourers. At Münster, in the years 1908 to 1910, 247 
leasehold small holdings for artisans have been created.” 
“ The results of the Royal District Administrations are as yet 
less considerable, those of private societies with State subvention, 
though irregular, are worthy of note.” 
“ The total work of settlement is almost exclusively effected by 
the Commission for settlements and the General Commission.” 
“ Counting five members to each family, 130,000 people have 
been brought into economically improved conditions. In how far 
this may benefit the second generation—the children of the settlers— 
cannot as yet be determined.” 
“ These efforts, however, may be looked upon as a regenerative 
component among the measures for the improvement of the people.”
