Notes: Identity uncertain; There are Bächs in Berne, Lucerne and Schwyz, but the correspondent Blattler was a papetier. His letters took 11 days to reach the STN and Bächs in Schwyz from 1769 had a papermill, it seems the most likely candidate. This is, moreover, the only Bäch recorded in Dictionnaire Historique de la Suisse. No population figure is given. The slow speed of letters plus the fact that the letter added 'en Suisse' to the address raises possibility he wrote from Bäch in Austria.
