In his letter of 20 February 1840, titled "General Call to the Compassionate Humanity", Schipfer describes the suffering of the French inhabitants near the rivers Rhône and Saône and also provides a brochure on his "General Communication or World language (in German: Allgemeine Communications- oder Weltsprache)". Other brochures dealt with grammar and teaching materials for adults and children from 12 to 14 years of age.
