Excerpt from The Attitude of European States Toward Emigration to the American Colonies and the United States, 1607-1820: A Part of a Dissertation Submitted to the Faculty of the Division of the Social Sciences in Candidacy for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy, Department of History, 1937

Where the governments took an active interest in coloni zation and closely supervised their trading companies it was natural for them to promote emigration to the colonies they were establishing. Thus Sweden not only sent officials to Holland to buy supplies and to hire sailors for her expeditions to New Sweden but also instructed her provincial governors at home to gather emigrants and to hire enlisters to persuade Swedish vagrants to emigrate. It was under such instructions that Sven Skute, Mans Kling, and Johan Printz collected persons in the mining and forest districts of Sweden for the colony between 1640 and 1655. Funds were given them to engage soldiers, laborers, and settlers. Skilled workmen were secured, as well as artisans and farmers.5 Even the Swedish Council of State, and the Commercial College which controlled trade and regulated Swedish trading companies, may be looked upon as agents of the government in promoting emi gration. In a sense, all Swedish officials were promotion agents.
