poznámkou že i velci pání se někdy mýlí, a že budu míti opět jednu zajímavou kapitolu do svých poznámek. Páni pak seděli velmi ztícha, a s velkým zajmem o vše co se [[underlined]] dělo venku [[/underlined]] Byla to pro ně nepříjemná hodina. Navrátíli jsme se po 1 hod., a prohlédli si sběžně Výšehrad, hřbilov, zdě, atd. A pak (prsělo) jsme jeli na Hradčany kde jsme si prohlédli kostel (a kapli Sv. Václava, atd., a tíž Belvedere. Pan Jiránek nejel va Hradčany, - byl smceu spěchat domu.

Harberová jíž byla velmi unavená. Byli by též rádi viděli večer oživené ulice, avšak dešt´ to zkazil. Harperovi mírú ráno časně vyjelí, do Berlina, a proto jsem se s nímí rozloučil po velmi pilném dnu. Poněvadž zítra opět nastává exkurse, koupil jsem si živobytí, a učiníl jíná opatření na cestu. Sel jsem pozdě spátí.

Ńdolí toto jest lemované skalární, a muoho lesů pokrýrá vyšiny. Vystorpili jsme in Tynice a šli podél Sázavy ke zbořenénin hradu Kostelec Sbírali jsme rostilny podél břehu Sázavy, a blíže Kostelec json lesem porostlé bŭhy a svahy, blízko n řeky. Hrad Kostelec byl dle všeho dosti rozsáhlý, a jeu zbořené zdĕ a véž nad řekon zůstávají. Na hřbetu který klesá k řece na jihogá podní straně je otevřený pruh, podobný našini prérieum. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[tab out top of diary]] 1914 Travel Diary [[/tab out top of diary]] [[upper right]] 9. [[/upper right]] Zde jsme sbíralí rostling. Odtud jsme šli lesem na Čakovice, Kamenire, blízko zámku hrabĕte a k N. Hospodĕ. V hospodĕ jsme obĕdvali, a přečkali bouří. Tato kospoda hlavně slouží vrednilsinn hrabĕte, a nám bylo jen jaksi mimořádné poslouženo. Po obědě (a po děs ti) jsme vysli zpět k hraběciann hřbitovu. viděli jsme velké mnsožství krásných [[underlined]] Lupinus [[/underlined]] v květu. Celá tato krajina je velmi malebná, hodně vlnitá, neb i drsnější, kde střídají se lesy a pole. V Popovicich jsme účeirli. Hrozila bouře. Doš li jsme do Stráučie v dešti, a po vlaku do Prahy. Převlíhl jsem se a šel brzo spát.
15 června, 1914- V pondělí [[underlined]] Pracoval jsem hlavně v skeníku na urbách. Odpoledne jsem navstúrl practikum prof. Velenovskeho,ve 4:15[[superscript, underlined]] hod., a byl jsem zde téměř do 6 hodin. Préd tim jsem šel do místa si dár okolí, a nakoupil jsem větší počet pohlednic k zachovani. Byl to jeden z tečh méně významných dnů jákých jsem zažil několik. Večer jsem pral a upravoval láthu na přednášký. [[end page]] [[blank page]]

Sbírka je velmi bohatá, a střepy json dovedně slepeny a doplněny, - což prý hlavně dělá pí. Jírová. To velmi podrobně rozdělení vrstev v cihelně Meikbekové se mně zdá prěhnané. Od p.

[[/underlined]] V 1/2 8[[underlined, superscript]] mé [[/underlined, superscript]] jsem se sešel s p. Halaburten a jeho družinou u brány. Pan [[inserted]] ^ Bedřich [[/inserted]] Halaburt je c.k. inspektoreue smichovského školniho okresu. Byl s ním školní rada K. Federabend, c.k. professor ústavu učítelů, a p. Karel Hrichovec, c.k. cvičný ústav učítelů v Praze, a a, 30 kandidátů učítelství,- mladíci. Šli jsme nejprve pěšky na Jenerálku kde je "jubilejní škola", - nová. Je to úhledná budova, a přípojena je část´ v které bydlí řídící učítel. Jsou dvě školní světnice, avšak nyní se učí ještě pouze v jedné. Obyčejně má učítel as 40 dětí
zde však 60. Mimo řádné školy je též štace (expositura) v zvláštních případech, a na tu platí několik osad, kdežto na obyčejna školu platí pouze obec. Učítel dostává zemský plat, ostatní, [[insertion]] ^ věcný náklad, [[/insertion]] vydržije obec, neb několik obrí. Učitel zde vynčiye 3 rŏcníky. Dnes měl 28 chlapeǔ a 20 děvčat. Vyslechli jsme práci. Nejprve četli jednotnĕ a pak společně z tabule. Pak vedl ucitel s nímí rozprávka o koěsiěce. Zde je 1 [[superscript]] [[underlined]] mi [[/underlined]] [[/superscript]] třída ve dvou [[oddělevich?]]. Děti si dobře hledeli práce navzdor tomu ze zde bylo 35 [[end page]] [[start page]] [[tab out top of diary: "1914 TRAVEL DIARY"]] 19 dospělých návštěvníku ve světnícé najednou. Mladící stáli vzadu. Ve čtvrtek a pátek odpoledne je prázdno, a někde i ve čtvrtek. Farář navštěvuje školu a dostane za cesty plat. Vyučuje náboženství každý týden 2 hodiny, - dvakrát. Kde je farář starý, neb jinak nemůže, dovolí se p. uciteli ucit náboženství, a za to dostane zvlášt ní plat. Každý je nucen se hlásit k nej aké mu zákonem [[uzua němu?]] náboženství. Zde pracují dvě oddělení v jedné svět nící. 1 [[superscript]] [[underlined]] mi [[/underlined]] [[/superscript]] oddělení sestává z 1 [[superscript]] [[underlined]] ho [[/underlined]] [[/superscript]] roč níku, a 2 [[superscript]] [[underlined]] hé [[/underlined]] [[/superscript]]
z 2 [[superscript]] [[underlined]] ho [[/underlined]] [[/superscript]] a 3 [[superscript]] [[underlined]] ho [[/underlined]] [[/superscript]]. Mají zde mnoho změn poněvadž jsou to většinou děti děl níku z cihelny, a stěhují se často. Jedno oddělení píše zatém co druhé pracuje [[strikethrough]] ne [[/strikethrough]] "přímo." Ucil je zuát [[underlined]] Velké písmeno [[/underlined]] , - kde se má nží voti. V seznamu píší místo "Geneválka".

Když děti jdou k tabulí pokloní se nejprve p. učiteli, a pak nám. Ucitel podá otázku, děti [[vyzdvihuon?]] ruce, a jednoho z těch vyvolá. Tato škola patří do [[suri?]] chovského okresu [[insertion]] ^ školního. [[/insertion]] ,- nej větší okres v Čechách. Světnice školní jsou zde čistě a [[sí hledné?]]. Lavice jsou "[[besich?]] desks", každá
pro čtyří osoby. Při odchodu vstali dĕti a řekli ([[zpivanĕ?]]): "S Pánem Bohem". Záchody pro hochy a dívky jsou oddĕleny. Po té p. inspektor svolal kandidáty i p. učítele do vedlejší svĕtnice na konferenci a posuzoval práci. Učítel vyslech posouzení své práce P. inspektor upozornil p. učitele že někdy trošku úsečnĕ na dĕti mluví, - soudí že žena se této chybĕ v píše vyhne. Též se nelíbil hlas učitele, a způsob podupávání když chtěl zjednat pozornost. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[tab out top of book: "1914 TRAVEL DIARY [[?]]"]] [[upper right]] 23 [[/upper right]] Béře se ohled na krásko - zrakost, atd. Pak jsme šli do Nebušic kde je čtyř-třidní škola s 310 žáky. V první třídĕ učí p. Svoboda, řidící učitel. Ma 18 kockŭ a 19 dívek, každé skupení na jedné stranĕ světnice. Tří sedí v jedné lavici.

Žák se zde pokloní učíteli. Jsou zde začátečníci. Čtli též, - ale ovšem pracně. Ukazuji si prstem při ctění. Osnova = program. V II třídĕ je 19 chlapeů a 27 děvčat. Jsou rozdĕleny na stranách.

Dobrá rozprávka ale málo vĕcné práce. Třídy v této šhole jsou rozdĕleny: I trǐda = 1 [[underlined]] [[superscript]] mi [[/superscript]] [[/underlined]] ročnik.

Paní řídicí mně dala kytici růží. Je dle všech známek dobrá politikavka a vládne v domácnosti.
Pak jsme šli do Přední Kopaniny, kde jsme v hostinci poobědvali,- očekávali nás. Po obědě nám mladí pánové zazpívali študentské písně. Pak jsme návstivíli starý kostelík sv. Máři Magdaleny. Hlavní část' je z dob pohanských. Malizli prý i oharky pod starýrn oltářem (neb oláž [[dĕmín?]]) Stará křtitelnice kamenná, popsána kyrilkou, je prý as 900 stará. Je zde tíž stará tvrz.

For some distance, beyond Čerčany, - [[strikethrough]] to Benešov [[/strikethrough]], - the country is rougher, and then more rolling to Benešov. Konopiště is to the right in woods on hill.

[[end page]] [[start page]] 59 The "silnice" are everywhere bordered with white stone-posts where there is an embankment. We are running parallel to a more or less timbered ridge to left. We stopped at Votice. There is much happening along the line. We passed Heřmaničký-Sedlec, a large village. The line of timbered hills to left continues, and some appear on the right. Much timber here. Beyond the next village the country is more open, especially to right. We passed around a great curve, & far to right a range of timbered hills appears, - almost mountainous. Another village, & there a long stretch of rolling country with fields and graves. A woman at Votice passed water, - all from one glass! The town [[insert]] ^ of Tabor [[/insert]] is large & has a nice lake. A fine place. Beyond, along the river there
is much timber. Just beyond Planora we passed through a fine forest. Soběslav is also a larger place, - with a tower. Veselí-Mezimosti is also quite a place. The country is all rolling; - then more gently, with many groves and belts. We passed between two large fish ponds and stopped at Třeboň. The country is gently rolling or quite flat. Much timber. At chlumec there is a forest opposite the depot. Beyond this are flat woods, mostly Scotch Pine. The soil is sandy and fine ground. There is much new timber set out. At Suchdol there is much cut timber (wood). Southeast of the boundary broken mountain ridges appear. Many potatoes are raised in this part, and some rye. There is much cultivated timber, - a sign that the soil is poor! In Cmunt (Gmünd) only German inscriptions appear. I reached Vienna at 7.45 P.M. (Fr. Jos. depot) and met Bertha and Paul.

Krajina je celkem stejná až po Komarom, kde jsme viděli Dunaj, který se zdá, v poměru k skutečným velkým řekám, dosti malým. Mezi Uhry je mnoho snědých, s černými oči a černým vlasem.

[[underlined]] 3 července, 1914, v pátek. [[/underlined]] Spent the day in the field with Dr. von Degen. We first went to Soroksár (Šorokšar), and walked to the Danube, and then had boat take us over to the Island of Csepel. This is an imperial game preserve, but Dr. von Degen has a permit to use it. It is a "sand - pusta", very similar to the larger and more distant sand pusta at Nagy Nyir ("Nádži Nýr"), but it has had some scotch pine [[insertion]] ^ and [[underlined]] Robinia pseudoacacia [[/underlined]] [[/insertion]] set out on it, and this of course changes it. Dr. von Degen wants seeds of [[underlined]] Helianthus [[/underlined]] and [[underlined]] Cuscuta [[/underlined]] [[end page]] [[start page]] 69. When we came to the Danube we found a heavy growth of tall coarse plants along the sandy slope up from shore to bank, & Dr. von Degen said this kind of formation is what the Russian botanists call [[underlined]] "burian" [[/underlined]]. Among the plants in this we noticed: [[list of plants in two columns]] [[first column]] Artemisia Plantago Arctium Rumex Convolvulus Eryngium Verbascum australia Oenothera biennis (in[[?]]) [[/first column]] [[second column]] Echium vulgare Leonurus cardiaca Onopordum? a[[?]] Hybrid; - Found snails here.

On Csepel Island we observed plants more closely, and Dr. von Degen identified them as we proceeded. We first entered a somewhat wooded border, and then examined the plants in open places.

These sanddunes are rather more densely covered with vegetation than those at Muscatine, and somewhat resemble the parts of the sandy areas at Chicago which are covered with larger shrubs and small trees, - with the more xeroplytic openings here and there. In this part on Csepel Isl. the planting of Scotch Pine and Robinia has affected the appearance, and Dr. van Degen says that the sand pusten at Nagy Nyir are just like the Csepel area with the [[end page]] [[start page]] 81 [[left margin] Dr. Stahl of Jena also considers the summer resting feature as characteristic of the [[underlined]] steppe [[/underlined]]. [[/margin]] Scotch Pine and Robinia removed. Dr. von Degen doesn't regard the sand-pusten, - the real "pusten," - as equivalent to the steppe because there is no summer resting period. He applies the term "pusten" to these sandy areas, such as on Csepel Isl. and at Nagy Nyir He calls the salt areas "salt steppes" because they have a summer resting period during which the vegetation almost disappears. The prevailing winds here, according to Dr. von Degen, are from E. to West, there was a great sand plain east. The sand is at surface, loose, and practically free from humus.
We returned to Soroksár, took dinner at a restaurant, and then went by train to Kuns[[insertion]] ^ z [[/insertion]]entmiklós, to see the "sand-stepper". This is southward. We passed through a broad, nearly flat plain, which is locally more or less sandy. Nearer Budapest it is very sandy, and there are many vineyards. About 13 yrs. ago the [[underlined]] Phylloxera [[/underlined]] destroyed the vineyards on the hills, and the wine-growers came to these sandy plains. Southward there is richer soil, and the country had been long cultivated. It much resembles [[end page]] [[start page]] 83 our Wisconsin or Iowan prairies, even to the scattered groves and fields. It looks much like Northern Iowa, but there is little corn, wheat being the chief crop, with some oats. The wheat harvest is now well on. This plain runs to the Danube and the latter flows along the loess bluffs which rise to the west. Occasionally on this plain there is also a poorly drained tract. Here and there sandy hummocks also appear on the richer plain. About half way down to Kunsenfmiklos salty spots begin to appear in undrained places. At the station of Kiskun-Laczháza
I took [[underlined]] photo 28 [[/underlined]], looking E. across the cultivated plain. The rows and groves of [[underlined]] Robinia pseudacacia [[/underlined]], scattered about over the plain, look very much like our prairie groves. The station is some distance from the town of Kuns[[insertion]] ^ z [[/insertion]]entmiklós, which is situated on the banks of a large salt basin (or lake) in a great, flat plain. We walked in the direction of the town. There are salt flats, surrounded by cultivated fields, and there are several windmills in sight. We noted the following salt plants, and those marked x were collected: Lepidium perfoliatum " [[Ditto for: Lepidium]] ruderale [[end page]] [[start page]] 85 Hordeum gussoneanum Ononis spinosa Artemisia viridis Lotus corniculatus Achillea collina Beck x Plantago maritima x Lotus tenuifolius (yellow) x Agrostis alba x Atropis limosa x Tetragonolobus siliquosus fls. yellow [[Fletrium?]] perennis x Ononis pannonicus x Festuca pseudovina Hack. x Podosperumum Jacquiniana x Scirpus maritimus (very common in lower places.) x Ranunculus sardinus x Plantago tenuifolia [[underlined]] rare [[/underlined]] x Trifolium fragiferum L.

At edge of large basin I was mired in usual salt-basin slime, - seemingly dry on surface. We returned to the station, and to Budapest. Dr. von Degen insisted on taking my plants and having them properly dried and shipped. He himself puts up beautiful specimens, - or has his servant do it. [[end page]] [[start page]] 8[[overwritten]] 8 [[/overwritten]]9 During the day [[insertion]] ^ at times [[/insertion]] we carried on a conversation concerning other matters than plants. We saw Hungarian peasants with white "pajamas" called "gatě", á = Bohemian [[underlined]] a [[/underlined]] a = " [[Ditto for: Bohemian]] [[underlined]] ó [[/underlined]] s = sh. = š sz = s ö = as in German. Freemasonry is not prohibited in Hungary, but few belong. The real Hungarians are Calvinists. Many Slovaks and Germans are Lutherans. Germans, Slovaks & some Magyars are Catholics also. The language question causes bitter strife, - religion does not. The Magyar speech is all in fore part of mouth, - not in throat.
Cirsium arvense is a bad pest in Hungary. Dr. van Degen always speaks of "Slaves" for "Slavs", Bobajka is a Slav dish of honey & poppyseed, & other stuff. Fields are worked by Hungarian white oxen. Log houses appear. The grainfields are not as clean as in Bohemia and Germany, more like U.S. Houses are commonly scattered on farms as in America. Slovaks live chiefly in villages. Dr. von Degen says there is loess at Pomaz. We returned at night, and I returned to hotel after one of the finest days in Europe. Found Bertha & Paul at the hotel. [[end page]] [[start page]] 91 [[underlined]] 4 červenu , 1914 [[/underlined]], v sobotu. Went out a little in morning to look about the city. Bertha & Paul arranged to leave for Vienna at noon, and I started out to hunt up the Geological Institute, Stefánia rit, k. 14. I followed Stefánia rit. There are beautiful large sycamores in park adjoining. After some trouble I found the Institute, and learned that the Director, Dr. Lotsy, was not in. The assistant director suggested Százhalmbatta or Ercsi as good localities for loess. He called a younger man, [[insertion]] ^ who gave me the name of [[/insertion]] Mr. Peter Freitz, geologist, Stefánia rit, 14, [[insertion]]^ who works in loess. [[/insertion]] He speaks good English, and showed the Museum, in which are many
remains of mammoth (Elephas primigenius), 2 sp. of [[underlined]] Rhinoceros [[/underlined]], etc. In gravels they also find Bos. He also displayed specimens of loess, some gray and some yellow, from Hungary, & with it were samples manifestly not aeolian loess. Most of the samples are yellow, - a light yellow. Some samples of secondary loess, with gravel, etc., appear: others are heavy, brownish. Also an occasional sample, as XIV-1903V-Tapláry, of gray loess. This is only in layers, low down, - between loess and next stratum. Also XII-Györ. Some samples are sandy, rougher, [[end page]] [[start page]] 93 and certainly not like loess. These are always in lowest part. My guide said there are long stretches of loess (?) which are without shells, and they contain pebbles (small) and sand. These loesses also contain lime nodules (some in museum), many of them large. They look like ours. There are also samples similar to our heavier yellow loess. Some of the gray loess in the Museum has iron streaks and tubes. Along the Danube there is an upper reddish loess, - I was told. There is [[insertion]] ^ a [[/insertion]] samples of gray loess from Muzsla. He says loess is
60 - 70 in. deep on plain. I received some literature, with charts, and was advised to see the loess at the brickyards at Péczel. Went to Péczel in the afternoon. Found exposures just beyond Péczel, on the left (N. side) of the RR. There is here a whole series of exposures formed by excavations for the big brick yard. [[underlined]] Took photo 3 [[/underlined]] at [[underlined]] a [[/underlined]]. This is at the lowerend of the first exposure (nearest to station).

Also strongly oxidized bands. In the past at (g) I found only a few fragments of shells. A rainstorm came up and I was compelled to give up, without being through. On return I picked up fossils in exposed marker x - yellow & gray loess. Returned to Budapest at night.

I found a few shells, mostly broken, and chiefly in the silt bands. [[underlined]] Photo 2 [[/underlined]] - old fashioned well, beyond cut (h). I returned to Péczel, and [[insertion]] ^ at 11:34 [[/insertion]] to Budapest, reaching latter at 12.10 P.M. I then took a train at 2:05 P.M. for Vienna. At 5.40, P.M. we passed five fields of wheat on flat plain. The harvest is on, and the wheat sheaves are piled up in curious cross-shaked shocks. There are white washed huts & thatched roofs in village just W. of this great field. Our first stop after passing these great fields was at Bruck - Királyhidal. It is the first station west of the village [[end page]] [[start page]] 107 which is west of the great fields. Here we begin to see the "rooster -feathers" of the police. The inscriptions in cars are: "Opasno van se nagnuti." "Nicht hinausbengen". "Epericoloso aporgersi" The name of Bucharest is pronounced "Bukarest", with a slight softening of the [[underlined]] k [[/underlined]]. At the first station W. of Bruck I noticed the shocks piled up so: [[Image - drawing of a cross shaped shock]] grain is always at center, butts outward. In some cases these were even three in a row: [[Image - drawing of 3 cross shaped shocks in a row]] Often also [[underlined]] two [[/underlined]] crosses. [[Image - drawing of 2 cross shaped shocks]]
As far as I saw, all the harvesting was done with a cradle. Saw threshing machine at one place. (Dr. von Degen told me that they could not use agricultural machinery because they had no one to repair it.) These are some very large continuous fields. There are alternating long strips of corn, oats & wheat, - 4 - 10 rows of sheaves to a strip. Looks well everywhere as far as yield goes. In the Austrian part there are no houses on the farms, as in Hungary. We passed a great cemetery on N. side at 6.33 PM, - with large church. Reached Vienna at [[strikethrough]] 6.05 + [[/strikethrough]] 6.40 [[strikethrough]] PM [[/strikethrough]] P.M., & at once took car for Pelikangasse [[end page]] [[start page]] 109 [[underlined]] July 6, 1914 Monday [[/underlined]] Visited with Paul & Bertha until 10.30 A.M., when I started for Spitz to meet Dr. Bayer. The day is fine and clear. Heligenstadt, the 1st station out,shows loess banks, - seem to be large. At Kritzendorf there are some banks in side-hill gulleys. The water of the Danube is yellowish with a bluish cast. Flags, red above, white below, appear along the river. Loess banks appear at edge of plateau at Königsbrunn; Unterstockostall. The lower part appears stratified, as at Péczel. These [[insertion]] ^ latter [[/insertion]] banks are on the right of the R.R. going out. [[end page]]
The next stop is at Kirchberg, where loess is about same. The banks are N of RR. The Viennese speak a broad dialect, Sógst, Etivó There are also low banks at Hadersdorf, - good. The hills along here are all terraced and loess, exposed in vertical cuts, - stands well. There are some terraces at Gedersdorf. At Rohrensdorf it is fine, and the terraces are nearby. They run all along the bluffs here. In places rock ledges project out above the loess terraces. The hills towards Krems are lower and farther back, but still terraced. The terraces evidently stand well. The immediate vicinity of Krems is not so good. [[end page]] [[start page]] 111 Beyond Krems the terraces are walled with rock, the slopes being rocky. Grapes are raised everywhere on these terraces. Beyond Unterloiben there are ruins of an old castle and walls on point of rock. It is said to be Richard Coeur de Lions castle. It is just at Durnstein-Oberloiben. The part of the river above Krems is narrow, and the country is rough and picturesque. Below Krems the valley is much broader. Passed through tunnel just beyond Krems, and others farther on. This picturesque region is [[insertion]] ^ called [[/insertion]] the [[underlined]] Wachau [[/underlined]]. I met Dr. Bayer & the English-speaking consul at Spitz, and had a chat with
them. They informed me that Dr. Wolff & Menzel were coming to see Bayer's sections about the 15th of August. Left at 3:14 P.M. for Krems, where I changed to a Vienna train. A slow, slow, train. On way took photos: [[underlined]] Photo 23 x [[/underlined]]- Hills across the Danube, heavily timbered with conifers, opposite Weissenkirchen 1/o Wachan. - At Stein - Matera there is a large castle across the Danube, - somewhat distant.

[[end page]] [[start page]] 113 We crossed the Danube near Tulln. The water is yellowish, and rolls like that of the Missouri. At Greifenstein (?) there is some loess up on rocky ledges. Below that it seems to be thin all the way down the slopes. There is also loess at Höflein a.d. Donan. At Kritzendorf there are rock ledges with loess (?). Not very good! Filter rocks appear in ledges in bluffs below this point. The best loess banks seem to be at Heiligenstadt. In the evening [[overwritten]] the [[/overwritten]] Dr. Shohan called and we spent a good natured, chatty evening.
[[underlined]] July 7, 1914, Tuesday [[/underlined]] We made preparations for the final going, and left at 9.00 A.M. for Plzeń. The train was crowded, so we secured a 2nd class place by tipping the conductor. We had a comfortable ride all the way, but had to repeat tip (to another conductor) beyond Cmunt (= Gmünd). We caught sight of Sumava from near Borovany. At Borovany there is a "hostinec" near the track, named "U Jana Žižky z Trocnova". Troenov is west of the track. The country here is rolling, with much timber and many fish ponds. Both indicate poor soil and the holding of large areas by a [[end page]] [[start page]] 115 few individuals. From near Budĕjovice we could see Šumava, forested [[insertion]] ^rounded [[/insertion]] mountains, to the southwest. Budĕjovice shows signs of much industrial enterprise. Beyond Budĕjovice there is more cultivated land, but also many fish ponds. The country from Hluboká beyond Nakři-Netolice becomes flatter, and nearly all of it is cultivated. A good view of Šumava is obtained from Vodňany... At Protivin there was much washing out on the grass. The women wash in the stream. Toward Ražice there is a rolling plain.
Beyond this to the southwest the wooded low mountains come close up to R.R. At Strakonice there is an old church west of track. This is quite a town. Saw seeders and harrows used in fields along the way. There are wooded hills to west all along to Horaždóvice. There is a fine view of Súmava to the southwest beyond Horaždóvice At Neponuk there is a castle on a wooded knob. At Štáhlava, to the west, there are ruins of the castle Lopata on the wooded hill. [[end page]] [[start page]] 117 We reached Plzeň at [[blank space]], and took a street car for the Hotel Svoboda, where we put up. After locating, we walked out and took some photos.

Called on Jakub Burian, retired policeman, now serving in city bathhouse. He is 75 yrs. old (July 8[[superscript]] th [[/superscript]]). He is a cousin of uncles Jos. & John Černý. Černý was from Chrást, no. 7. Jos. Konvalinka was from Plavá. Mr. Burian is not quite sure whether father Konvalinka came from Planý near Plas, or from
Slavý. He said the Chrást parsonage is at Dejšina, some distance from Chrást. There is a church there, - the church of St. Simon, where the Konvalinkos and Charvits were married. Another cousin of his is Mrs. Šalander, in Solná ulice. Jeji nystarši deera je pi. Schamberk oḿ, na Petákovo náměsti, čis. 20, Neḿ však nyḿ doma. Jeji sestra je Jsi.

His wife is not strong-looking, and they are evidently not in very good circumstances. He was a soldier in the Austro-Italian and Austro Prussian wars, and served as a policeman for many years. He now gets a small pension. A married daughter lives in the same house. She has two boys. Mr. Burian reminds one of Uncle Joe Černý. We went to the hotel and I wrote, [[insert]] ^ studied routes, [[/insert]] and then rested. An original Plzeň institution is the "Bumbalatorium,", a saloon!
[[underline]] July 8, 1914 - Wednesday, [[/underline]] In the morning we started out for Dnešice to see Paul's uncle. On the way from the station, Dnešice-Žerov, to Dnešice I took photos in [[insert]] of [[/insert]] a large Scotch Pine Forest.

Uncle Václar works in the coal mines, a little west of Dnešice, in the forest-covered mountains From Dnešice a broad valley or basin extends southeast. It is a beautiful region with every bit of it (practically) under cultivation. Václar Hanzlik gets 32 K. for two weeks works, -yet he is educating a son by the second wife. We started to walk to Krašave, but beyond the pine forest the rain was heavier, and we were glad to met the coachman of
the local dignitary who rents the [[statik ?]]2 (?) or [[panstir ?]]. He was a Pole, and accept a fee gladly. He drove us in the "pansky" carriage to Krašaver by way of Dolejsi Lukavice.

I remained about two hours in the "hostinec", and there met an old German who spoke fair Bohemian- an interesting character. His notion[[insert ]] was that Americans are chiefly concerned in getting girls for immoral purposes.[[/insert]] Reached Pilsen at 5.44 pm, and remained in hotel. Paul & Bertha came in later. I went to Wollners, and to Buriavus (Reverse order.) [[page end]] [[page start]] [[insert in upper right corner]] 123 [[/insert]] [[underline]] July 9, 1914 Thursday.

We then went to Wollners, and Mrs. Wollner took us to the famous "Měšťanský" brewery. The brewery is an extensive property, but some of the methods look primitive. Their beer "Urquell" is advertised all over Europe. Mrs. Wollner is a shareholder. It seems that there were about 65 properties with the brewing rights
which were coordinated in the company. The company has since purchased some of the properties and thus acquired the rights. This still leaves about 50 rights held by private individuals. In the afternoon we had another visit from Paul's relatives, and later we visited [[Buriane?]], and received pictures. The day was disagreeable, and mostly rainy. In the evening we called on the Wallner's again, and had a pleasant visit and big supper. Mr. Wollner is a book printer (?), + his son Emil is secretary of the [[ ? ? ? ? ]] This concern is new, + and is developing [[end page]] [[start page]] [[insert, top right corner of page]] 125 [[/insert]] a fine business with [[kashin?]] products from the [[?]] at [[?]].

They manufacture sanitary closets, bath tubs, etc. In a chat with Burian I learned that Jos. Kile's mother was a sister of Burian's mother.

[[underline]]July 10, 1914[[/underline]] [[underline]]Friday[[/underline]] Could not leave on early train because waiter had put my fountain pen away and I could not get it until late in the morning. We left for Chrast at 10.[[superscript]]21[[/superscript]] am. Plezň is somewhat old-fashioned, fairly clean, and not so high-priced in some things as Prague.

On a narrow street leading down the hill from the "main" street, we found the old Černý house, no. 7. A widow, Mrs. Surchý, (who was an Jilek) now lives there with a daughter. Mrs. Suchý is not well. She is a widow. She says that the house is same as of old, and that the ornamented[[?]] door is the old door, - probably made by the grandfather Černý. They keep hay in the garret.

[[end page]] [[start page]] [[insert- upper right hand corner]] 147 [[/insert]] This already begins at the second station west of Choceň, and the farther we go the more woods appear, especially on the north side. Just at edge of town east of Choceň there are some rocky ledges, and beyond these quarries appear. The quarries are fine. The country east grows quite rough. Flowers appear in windows and on "shelves" everywhere along the line. There are many rocky ledges. Beyond Brandy's road Orlici it is quite rough, with steep wooded slopes. The forest is mostly spruce, and some deciduous trees appear. As Ústi nad Orlici there are rocky bluffs and wooded hills. Then, beyond town to north it is less rough and more cultivated.
Česká Třebova is quite a town, in country less rough. There are some industries, as at Ústí. Svitava is in Moravia, Its altitude [[insert]](another, later note, says 448.022) [[/insert]] above the sea, at R.R. station, is 386.923 meters. Westward [[insert]] ^ on road to Policka [[/insert]] there is a nice territory, well-cultivated, not so rough, with less woods. Then it becomes somewhat rougher again, then less rough, and so varies. There is much Scotch Pine here. The country from Svitava to Polička is gently rolling on the whole, with some rougher parts. The first part, to Horní Vendolí, is German, and the notices, etc., are wholly German, or German stands first, the conductor calls German name of station first. At Květná also German first. [[end page]] [[start page]] [[insert- top right corner of page]] 149 [[/insert]] At Polička everything is Bohemian. "Polička", only appears at station. I started out from Borová, out of Polička, a foot, following the road which winds through the long line of villages, which is about continuous from Borová, for a distance of "5 hours". The houses string along, and [[insert]] ^ sign [[/insert]] boards announce the limits of the villages, otherwise they are continuous, including and going beyond Polička. At Odříš, just below Borová, I saw the "hostinec" [[insert]] ^ [[strikethrough]] a [[/strikethrough]] reznictor" [[/insert]] of Eduard Filipi (an older sign reads "Filippi". I stopped and found that his son is in Cedar Rapids, in the meat business, etc. Took [[underline]] photo 3 [[/underline]]. I made inquires in the lower end of Borová, at "hostinec", and from laborer, and
learned (especially from old [[hortinsky?]] ) that the mill was built by Koráb, and used as a grist mill; then Skribsky also used it as a mill; then Svoboda, also as a mill; then Zezulka used it as "tkalcovna"; then Valter used it as a soap factory; then Stegr as a "tkalcovna"; then the mill was sold at auction, -"v drazbe", and Drastik bought it, - the present owner, who uses it as a mill, - a "srotovna", [[insertion]] ^and he made shingles for a time. [[/insertion]] He has a turbine wheel in place of the old water wheel. Took photos 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8, - see list at end of book. The Kovab mill has a date over it, 1859, at top, under little roof. The owner says that he restored it. (It may have been 1850). [[end page]] [[start page]] [[Upper right corner, inset]] 151 [[/inset]] Pi. Steinwecková v Pardubicich je z Korábova mlýna. P.

I took photos 23 and 24. The Protestant (Evangelical) Church at Borová is said to be 150 [[insert] ^ or about 100 [[/insert]] yrs. old. They now have a new church. The view of Kovabi mill in photo 24 shows little shed (in fore part of picture) in which the turbine-wheel is located. There was here formerly a waterwheel. The old catholic church at Borová
is said to have been built in 1009. The Protestants used to bury their dead at night in the forest. One of the Kossatks is said to have been pastor of the Protestant church. I left Borova at 5.06 p.m. The country around Borowa is rolling, but not rough, and mostly under cultivation. The line of villages and the RR. are nearly parallel to Policka. This entire region is beautiful, rich and fertile. There is much stock. On the train were traders who were going out with a number of large baskets to buy up fruit and vegetables. [[end page]] [[start page]]153 At Svitava I saw two women with flat packs on their backs-in a sheet which passed over the shoulders and was tied under the chin, on the chest. I went to Cistiuad Orlice and put up at the Hotel Frimel, where I had supper and room 2. The region about Cisti is rough, the town lying in a valley bordered by high hills with steep, mostly heavily wooded slopes. There are also rocky ledges here. The location is picturesque, and the place seems to be quite a summer resort. The place at which I am stopping is evidently thoroughly Bohemian, judging by papers, visitors, + patrons, etc.
[[underlined]] July 15. Wednesday [[/underlined]] 1914 Arose at 5:15 AM and wrote. After breakfast, I went to the station where I was to meet Paul and Bertha. The morning is bright, but here in the valley hazy. The station is in a narrow valley, bordered by forest-covered slopes. I took photo 23, showing train at station. This is the train on which we left for Dondleby by way of Kršpeck. The trains are almost always on time! Bertha and Paul arrived, and we left at 7:20 AM. We passed through Zamberk, and I tried to take a snap of the slopes [[insert]] ^ & fields [[/insert]] opposite the station. ([[underlined]] Failed [[/underlined]]). At Listice [[insert]] ^ und Orlici [[/insert]] we saw an old ruined castle. The whole region is very picturesque, with deep valleys, [[end page]] [[start page]] 155 heavily wooded slopes, rapid streams, etc. Towards Dondleby the country opens out more, a becomes rolling, but largely cultivated. Reached Dondleby at 8:51 am. We walked along the highway from Dondleby to Vamberk, - the old home of my people! Vamberk lies in a valley in a rolling country, - mostly cultivated. I took photo 5 as we approached the town. I called on the farář, Rev. Václav Huézda, whom I found in church, preparing for a funeral. He directed me to Mr. Jos. Král, "řidici něitel", who has been teaching here about 35 years, and who is preparing a history of Vamberk. He was not at
home, as he was to conduct the singing at the funeral, but his wife greeted me pleasantly, and sent for him. He is a genial, pleasant man who has much information concerning the early history of Vamberk. He is writing his history under the inspiration, and with the assistance of the historian at Cragne. He furnished me the following litteral transcript obtained from the old parish records,-a special record of events, etc. The sheet, as he has it, is here copied: [[underlined]] Jiné přiběhy Vamberka setihajici.

I then took photographs of the interior of the church ([[underlined]] photos [[/underlined]] 1 + 2 (IV), chromo-isolars, and later also [[underlined]] photos [[/underlined]] 3, [[insertion]] ^ 29,8, [[/insertion]] 6 (showing Panský Dům of which my father used to speak. This shows the pattern of the old houses in one of which, nos. 3, facing the square, my folks lived.) Between this Panský Dům and the lace store is a narrow street, -
Poštýnská ulice, - on the right hand side of which stood the old house 9 & 10, now replaced by a store building. I took photo 7 of the present building, the business of Karel Karásek, and to the right is a cottage like the old ones used to be. Also tried to take photo of present Nr. 3, - the store building of Arnošt Šlapl (dry goods) but this was spoiled. We then took dinner at the Kubias' hotel, and after dinner I went to the parsonage to get the records concerning our family. In the "matrika" I found that father and mother were married June 20, 1846, by Rev. Jan Pauckert, farář. [[end page]] [[start page]] 165 Father's age was 24, mother's 27 yrs. The [[insert]] ^ marriage [[/insert]] record reads as follows: [[underlined]] Franz Schimek [[/underlined]], měšťan a obuvnik ve Vamberce, manželský syn Ignáce Šimka, obuvnika z Častolovic, čis. 92, a jeho manželky Barbory, rodem Jana matonška z Častolovic, [[underlined]] Marya [[/underlined]] Tjtt, manželská dcera Josefa Tjtta, obuvnika a měšťana ve Vamberce, č. 161, a jeho manželky Marie, rodem Jana Kubiasové Akalce [[insert]] (?)

I then took the out-of-door photos listed on p. 163. I learned that a Mrs. Kubin in Vamberk is related to the Tits. Mr. Antonin Bednář, starosta, komerčin rada, tovarnik, is also [[end page]] [[start page]] 167 related through the Kubiás',--distantly. I bought cards and pictures of Vamberk,--one with father's old home as it appeared, and also tried to buy a tripod, but the screw did not fit. It was sent to a machinist who bungled it so that I could not use it, and I had to leave it. We had hired a team to take us to Častolovice, but the delay made the trip impossible (and a heavy storm brewing made it undesirable), and the trip was given up. I then took photos 8, 7, 30 (and old cottage at end of row in which father's house stood, --and like it), 27, and 4. Photo 27 shows the bridge,
(later than father's day), looking E., with statues on sides, beginning with S. Cyrill at the left, and with S. Method on the right. We took a train for Doudleby, where we at once changed to the train going towards Praque. Paul and Bertha went on to Prague, and I stopped off at Častolovice at a little after 5 P.M. Vamberk, I am told, has changed much because of industrial development. It is famous for its lace work, and is to celebrate The anniversary of [[blank]] the lady who started the industry [[end page]] [[start page]] 169 Častolovice has changed less. A quaint old street, with the low-numbered houses, hence evidently old,,- leads from the depot to the business part of the town. This is Rieger street. Kominský street leads up the hill to the left from it, to the old church on the hill, - kostel Sv. Vita, - built in 1775. My grandparents (father's parents) were married in this church, and father was baptized in it. Took photos 1 & 28 of the church, and 2 of Rieger street, which runs nearly parallel to the RR. east of station. I looked up no. 92, where father was born. The house has been rebuilt, and turned at
right angles. It stands part way up the slope north of Rieger street on a very narrow lane. The present house is shown (just below the big barn) in photo 23, looking W. of N. It is a white house. West of this place (no. 92) stands the old Matousĕk place (grandmother's old home), - no. 95. Nyni misto to patři Jos. Čepelkovi. I took [[underlined]] photo 24 [[/underlined]] of the old house at no. 95. The old house, built of hewn logs, still stands. There is here a quaint row of old cottages along a narrow lane which here runs along slope, parallel to the ridge or base. Here, according to my local informants, lived [[end page]] [[start page]] 171 old Matoušek, "obuvnik a hudebnik", whose son Charles, also a musician, is said to have been in Vamberk. It is said his sons are still there. Mrs Marie Matĕjka, of no. 98, an old lady of 78, says that old Mr. Matoušek moved "do Uher", and that the son Charles followed him, while another informant, Fr. Novák, ^ [[of no. 150]], her grandson (!), says that Charles went to Vamberk. Fr. Jindra nyni vlastni čés 92.

[[/underlined]] Worked at my room, and also visited Mr. Mrázek. In the afternoon I went up town, to Chodĕra's restaurant, and met the Silas, father and daughter, who came from Litomyšl Pardubice to see Paul. They are related to his mother. They are fine people. The daughter is an only child, and intends to enter the University. The father is in business. She wishes to go to America, but the parents object for business and family reasons. She is a fine intelligent girl, and it would be a pity to throw her away to some man under the present social conditions. I returned to the University to
meet Mr. Mrázek and get the negatives, and then returned to the Obecni Dŭm just in time to catch the Silas, who were with Paul and Bertha. They left at 7.30 P.M. I took supper at Méšt'anská Beseda and [[insertion]] ^ we [[/insertion]] went home and early to bed. It drizzled part of the day, - especially in the evening. When we parted with the Silas the daughter cried. She wants so much to go to America, but the parents object. The father is evidently very indulgent and thinks much of his daughter, but he cannot see his way clear to permit this. And the good girl will be lost here! [[end page]] [[start page]] 175 [[underlined]] July 17, 1914 [[/underlined]] - [[underlined]] Friday [[/underlined]]. I spent the forenoon at my room, and with prof. Nému and Mr Mrázek, while Bertha and Paul went out. We took dinner (Bertha & I) at the Mĕštánská Beseda, and I attended to banking. It rained much of the time. The Bank paid me 241 K. for 10 £, and for an additional 5 £, 120.50 K, - a total of 361.50 K for 15 £. We went to Hradčany and made the rounds of the church and the main halls, and Belvedere. We spend the evening, on the return, at the "Slavia" restaurant near opposite the Národui Didvadlo, where Dr. Peklo joined us. He was quite
jolly, and appeared to be ready for any sort of a lark. He and Paul have struck up quite a comradeship. After spending a pleasant social evening, we started for home. On the way Dr. Peklo suggested that we visit "Fleks", - the chief drinking place of Prague. We merely walked through; that was enough! The place is roomy, with all sorts of branches and corners. The tables are crowded in, & every space is occupied. The cielings are low, and the air heavy with smoke and bad breath. And here these people, - men and women, - came to sit by the hour! Usually a particular company selects a particular evening and table. After a certain hour (11 P.M.?) no more orders are taken for beer, but the guests order as many glasses as they wish before that hour. We went home! [[end page]] [[start page]] 177 [[underlined]] July 18, 1914, Saturday. [[/underlined]] We packed early for our trip into Germany and Switzerland. I saw Mr. Mrázek about developing negatives after I get back, and visited with Dr. Domin, who gave me further assurance that the matter of my Ph.D. (honorary) will progress satisfactorily. We took our grips and went up town. We had dinner at a resturant near the depot, and left at 2.56 P.M. for Dresden. Paul was stopped at the depot, as he was about to board the train, by a policeman who tried to arrest him. Probably Paul's complexion and appearance suggested a Serb, - or the officer was on the wrong scent. He reluctantly released him in time for the train.
We travelled again over the familiar route to Podmokli, but the whole region had changed. When I came in the spring everything was just starting, - now the harvest is on, the hop-vines are greatly developed and form a conspicuous part of the plant covering, - much of the fruit, then is flower, has been picked, and there are many suggestions of the approach of autumn. It was quite misty, and later rained some, so that the view was not always good. We noted particularly the old ruined castle of Strĕkov just before we reached Ústi. Ústi itself is [[end page]] [[start page]] 179 fine, with picturesque scenery, an old church, nearby ruins of old castles, etc. It is worthy of another visit. We reached Dresden at 6.50 P.M. and put up at the Seidel Pension, Lüttichan Strasse, no. 30, not far from the depot. We saw a Zeppelin airship circling about over the city, - a great lumbering thing with a lot of room for passengers. We took a walk to the Terrace along the Elbe, - as indicated on map of Dresden. We passed Luther's monument, and that of Albert, King of Saxony. We passed the Market Building which has a great painting on outer walls showing succession of rulers (?). In the vicinity of the statute of King
Albert are located the Art Museum, Albertinum (also art; - largely statuary). Across the river we can see the government buildings. Saw the Zeppelin again. A violent storm is brewing, and we hurried back. It commenced to rain, and we retired to a restaurant for supper. Here we had a little difficulty because the waiter brought only two suppers for three people, and claimed that was all that we ordered. On the way to our rooms we stopped at a shop to buy postcards, but as it was after 9 P.M. we had to stand on the street in the rain because is was against the rules to keep open after 9 o'clock. Finally reached our rooms and I went to bed early. [[end page]] [[start page]] 181 [[underlined]] July 19, 1914 [[underlined]], [[underlined]] Sunday [[/underlined]] We took a morning walk through the park to the Zoological and Botanical gardens, and then went to the Art Gallery, where we spent some time in examining the great collection of paintings, - many of them said to have been secured by theft and robbery in conquest. The gallery contains the world's most famous painting - Rafaels Sixtine Madonna and Child. Before this painting we met Dr. Heard and two ladies from the University. There are many English speaking people in the crowd. The gallery is large, with many rooms, and is described in the guide which I secured. Bertha was taken sick and went
to her room. Paul and I took dinner at the Liebig Restaurant (Bavarian), where I forgot my camera, and had to return for is from the Pension. These Saxons are more congenial and less overbearing than the Prussians. We went to the depot, and had to wait for the Berlin train until 4.26 P.M. I sent out postal cards from the station. The trip to Berlin was very ordinary. The fields are ripe and everywhere the harvest is on. We reached Berlin at 6.51 P.M. and put up at "Hospiz -Pension und Hotel Stadt. Dresden", of J. Uhling, Berlin SW. 11., Hedemannstr. 5. We took a walk along Friedrichstrasse and Unter den Linden in the evening. [[end page]] [[start page]] 183 [[underlined]] July 20, 1914, Monday [[/underlined]] Bertha and I went to Unter den Linden (Paul was with us a part of the time) to take photographs. We learned that photography in the streets was not permitted except by permission of the police dept, but on inquiry found found that its only purpose was to prevent blocking of busy streets. The police both on Unter den Linden and Sieges Allec permitted us to take photos if we kept off the busy lines of traffic. We walked towards the Royal Palace and I took photos 5, 6, 7, - all Reich's Vienna plates. We then walked to the Sieges Allee and took photos 8, 28, 1, 2 and 27.
Photo 28 is of special interest. It shows the row of statues on the west side of Sieges Allee. The first in the picture is that of Frederick II, 1440 - 1470, the next that of Frederick I, 1415 - 1440, the third that of Kaiser Sigmund, 1378 - 1397 and 1411 - 1415, and the fourth that of Kaiser Karl IV (our Karel Velký), 137-78. The line of statues begins at the north end on the west side, near the Column of Victory, with Albrect der Baer, 1100 - 1170, who holds a cross aloft, and has the busts of two bishops behind him. The line then runs chronologically to the south, Frederick II being at the south end of the lines. Hence [[end page]] [[start page]] 185 the line runs north on the East side, and ends with Emperor Wilhelm der Grosse I, with the busts of Bismarck and von Moltke, just opposite Albrecht der Baer. After dinner we went to Dahlem by rail. Bertha & Paul went to the Pharmacological Institute, and I to the Botanical Garden. [[underlined]] Dahlem Botanical Garden [[/underlined]] These gardens were developed under the encouragement of Emperor Wilhelm, who wished to excell the Kew Gardens. Neither he, nor the botanists, seemed to consider, however, that the sandy region about Berlin is very unfavourable to an all-round garden. Special conditions, such as soil-beds, rock heaps, etc., were created artificially at great
expense, but even this does not overcome the handicap. I called at the homes of Dr. (Geheimrat) Engler and Dr. Diels, but neither of them at home. I then strolled about the garden and made miscellaneous observations. The plant houses have blinds of slats, wired together, which can be drawn up on rollers. The walls of the plant houses are of brick, and have ventilating windows in lower part. In the houses with upright walls canvass curtains are used. [[image - pen drawing of tall house]] Section of a tall house, - the central part for palms, etc. [[end page]] [[start page]] 187 The surface of the grounds is quite irregular, - partly original, but largely artificially created. An interesting feature of the gardens is the development of beds for special studies. A more detailed grouping is shown in the description of the gardens (printed), but I particularly noted the following: - A bed demonstrating geotropism, Heliotropism, Anisotropism, etc. The latter, for example, under a box-like cover, open at ends. - A bed showing change in position of leaves, day and night. Here are [[underlined]] Oxalis Deppei [[/underlined]], [[underlined]] Chenopodium album [[/underlined]], [[underlined]] Stellaria media [[/underlined]], [[underlined]] Trifolium rubens [[/underlined]], etc. - A bed showing abnormal green "flowers", etc.
- A series of beds illustrating various types of pollination, as: flowers with exposed [[nectaries?]], flowers with concealed nectaries, hetermophis dimosphic flowers, etc. This is a fine feature of the garden. I went out and took [[underlined]] photo 27 (?) [[/underlined]], "Unter den Aichen", the street in front of the gardens. This has a row of nice oaks on each side, and the street railway runs in the curb-parking on the sides, - not on the paved street. It is a fine avenue. I returned to the garden and found that Paul and Bertha had come in. We walked about the gardens, giving special attention to the ecological part, which seems [[end page]] [[start page]] 189 to be wholly an effort to show plant geography by groups of representative plants. The pile of limestone, lava, granite, rocks, etc., sometimes with trickling water, and sometimes dry, furnish a variety of conditions, and special rail beds furnish still other variety. The pile of rock showing the Caucasus flora is fine. An Australian section is also noteworthy. The earth and rock in some cases had to be hauled from great distances. Sixty men are now required to care for the garden. This has been cut from 100, formerly employed. In many cases they temper the light in the plant houses by a streak
of white lead (or white wash?) on each pane, thus: [[image - pen sketch of window pane with paint applied.]] [[image label]] Paint [[/image label]] The gate-keeper told me that Dr. Engler was expected to take out a class (into the garden) at 6.45 PM I waited, but was told that he observed the "akademische viertel", and would be late. However, he came into the [[insertion]] garden by a [[/insertion]] private entrance from his villa, and disappeared in the mazes of the garden with his class. As it was late I could not take the time to hunt him up. We returned to Berlin, and after supper called on Dr. & Mrs. Geo Shull. Shull has been in Berlin since last fall, and is writing his Burbank report. [[end page]] [[start page]] 191 [[underlined]] July 21, 1914 [[/underlined]], [[underlined]] Tuesday [[/underlined]]. After some delay, - a shave and haircut, etc., I took the train for Dahlem again. {Women were soliciting very publicly at Potsdames Platz one of the most public places at 9 o'clock in the morning! I went to the Botanical Building next to the garden and found Dr. Diels. He is a very genial, lively energetic man, and treated me with great courtesy. We had a lengthy conversation concerning ecological matters. He suggested that at Halle there are still remnants of steppes. Also bits of sand-steppes near Mainz and Bingen. He loaned me a military map, and an ecological map, of the vicinity of Mainz, and suggested that I go from Mainz to Mombach, and then to Heidesheim and Budenheim.
Here are tertiary and diluvial sands, with remnants of the old sand-steppe flora. He suggested that I do not attempt to photograph at Momback, as this is a military drill ground. He also suggested that I get [[insertion]] y [[/insertion]] Jennecke's paper on the "Sand-flora von Mainz". He also suggested Sion, Switzerland, as a good place. He offers to send a German herbarium for sets of prairie plants. He also wants my prairie papers. He also wants notes on work in the Lakeside Laboratory. The work in the department of Botany is here mostly morphological and taxonomic. The physiological [[end page]] [[start page]] 193 work is done in a separate Institute by Dr. Haberlandt. Dr. Diels wants southwestern desert material, acorns of oaks. He also suggests that I publish a description (comparative) of the prairie, the sand - and salt - pustas of Hungary, and the steppe remnants at Prague. He also suggests that I send pamphlets, laws etc., concerning conservation, to Dr. Conwertz [[insertion]] (?) (Conwcatz) [[/insertion]] Berlin W. Grunewald Nr. 6/7 Dr. Diels then showed me about The building. The herbarium is very large, and occupies four stories of the building! It is wholly systematic. One story is devoted to cryptogams
There is a good sized laboratory for taxonomy. There is also a large "museum", in part semi-popular, - with wood sections, fruits, products,etc. Dr. Diels said that this is kept up for popular use largely, as they must please those who furnish the money! There are cases that show tree-truck, root, fruit, leaves, parasites, etc. - Also picture of tree. He suggested that five large plant pictures could be purchased from [[Nene?]] Photographischen Gesellschaft Berlin - Steglitz. Also colored scenes of mountains, etc., from: Nenker & Uslermeier Dresden. [[end page]] [[start page]] 195 We then took a stroll about the gardens, giving chief attention to the prarie section. This is badly confused, plants from the [[insertion]] ^ dry [[/insertion]] plains being mixed with those of the prairie. The beds lack altogether the aspect of the prairie. Many of the plants are in the wrong relation: [[underlined]] rhus glabra [[/underlined]] with plants of open prairie, [[underlined]] Heliopsis [[underlined]] (not [[Habu?]]) in the open ( where it is not doing well); etc. Altogether the aspect is more nearly that of some of the tangled prairie borders. I agreed to send seeds, with detailed descriptions of habitats, and with notes on the grouping of prairie plants in dry and wetter situations, on loess, sand, etc. This was a fine visit.
I then called at the Plant Physiology Institute across the way, but Dr. Haberlandt was out lecturing somewhere in Berlin, and I did not find him. The janitor took me about, and was able to explain the various laboratories, etc., as he is evidently also the "Diener". Dr. Haberlandt, who is also a [[Geherinsat?]], has a finely equipped office, and private laboratory. This is on main first floor (not basement). Here he has three laboratories in line on N. side. These are for microscopic work, and his "physiology" is evidently largely morphological (as had been suggested by Dr. Diels). He seems to have a large number of microscopes. [[end page]] [[start page]] 197 There is also a fine lecture room, with raised seats, a case for charts, (the charts are rolled up.) [[strikethrough]] and set up on end [[/strikethrough]] ) and a case for models which show fibrovascular bundles, etc. etc. On the 2nd floor (is not this where Dr. Habulandt's office is?) I am quite sure that is so, and that the lecture room and labs. are on first floor, N. side) on N. side Dr. [[insertion]] ^ von [[/insertion]] Guttenberg has a special microscopical laboratory, and a separate paraffin room. Also an office or private room. On the 3rd floor, north side, are the docents rooms, and a museum room, in which there is not yet much in the way of collections, - some woods, fruits and bottled materials.
On the 4th (top) floor there is a photo room with sky lights, and a dark room. On the 2nd floor on the South side there is a chemical laboratory with hood, spectroscope, scales, and work-tables. On the first floor on the S. side is the library, and adjoining it, a reading room. The library is fair, but the reading room is small. It is evidently intended only for advanced students. The basement is high and mostly well lighted. On its north side are two physiological laboratories. These contain rotation tables, etc. [[end page]] [[start page]] 199 Next to these, on the west, is a small experimental plant-house, built as an annex to side of building, equipped with bell-glasses, etc. The tables in lab. are covered with gray linoleum. In the physiological laboratory there is not a large amount of glass ware, - I have as much. An Auxometer is set up, there are large accurate transpiration scales which will take plants 1 meter high, and some other [[insertion]] ^ minor [[/insertion]] apparatus, but not a large amount. On the south side of the basement there is a mycological laboratory, - not yet much equipped, - in which Bacteriology is also to be included. There is also a garden and small
plant houses on the outside. This building is north and some east, across the street, from the Botanical Museum. It is new, [[underlined]] and not [[/underlined]] yet fully equipped. Dr. Diels informed me that the grounds hereabouts were first public (royal or state) property. It was decided to sell out, but reserve a part of the land for the garden and some public buildings. The departments of Botany, Zoology and Geology will be located here, - it is expected. The humanities will stay in the old building in Berlin, - also medicine. The ground here is somewhat rough, and is the loamiest around. Berlin. [[end page]] [[start page]] 201 I returned to Berlin at 2:45 P.M. and secured a lunch at the Pension. We then packed and left for Leipzig at 6.28 P.M. Paul did not get his laundry, and arranged to have it sent to Jena. The country from Berlin to Leipzig is a flat plain. The harvest is on. We saw an aeroplane near Leipzig. We reached Leipzig at 8.43 P.M., and put up at the Kistner Pension, - a very pleasant, homelike place. I stood a long time on the street - at Augustus platz, before Paul and Bertha succeeding in finding the place. My pile of baggage attracted some attention so late in the evening. While waiting I noticed that young fellows to tried to make up with girls on the street uniformly failed. A better lot than in Berlin!
[[underlined]] July 22, 1914 - Wednesday [[/underlined]] I started out alone at 8[[superscript underlined]]15[[/superscript underlined]] A.M., Bertha and Paul going after their respective interests. Paul dubs Bertha the "Museum specialist," and she retorts that his only interest is in dirty bottles and laboratories. I called at Max Weg's book establishment, and secured the addresses of German, Austrian and Swiss botanists (which I had left behind.) - Took photo 28. I then went to the Botanical Garden and called on Dr. Pfeffer, a venerable, fine old man, with whom I had a pleasant conference. He wants the Prairie paper. He had examinations, and so arranged with one of his young assistants [[end page]] [[start page]] [[in upper right corner]] 203 [[/in upper right corner]] to show me about. He used fair English. They have had this year about 380 students. On the ground floor there is a small plant house on S. side of building (an annex to it) for soil experiments, etc. Nearby is a small store-room for seeds to be used in experimental work. Next is a dark room, about 10 ft. square, with spectroscope, electric light, etc. Along the corridor are cases for chemicals, centrigal machines, and morphological apparatus. There is also a case resembling an ice-chest in which charts are kept, - rolled up and set up on end. There is also
a case for transpiration apparatus. The lecture room is quite large, and contains a fine projecting apparatus of Dr. Pfeffer's own design. Charts are evidently very much used. On the north ride is a small lecture room for Bacteriology. There is [[insertion]] ^ a [[/insertion]] special room[[strikethrough]] s [[/strikethrough]] for electrical experiements. East of [[left margin bracket]] The small lecture room is a small laboratory for beginners in histology and physiology. [[/bracket]] There are many cultures of algae in jars for experimental purposes with lights, etc. The south part of the east end is devoted to advanced students. Here there is an apparatus for throwing spectrum on slide, under dark [[end page]] [[start page]] 205 hood, and observing the effect (attraction, etc) of different colored lights on algae. On east side are two connected laboratories (not large) for advanced students. Then south on the east side is a small chemical laboratory, and sterilizing apparatus. The upper story is devoted to the home (evidently sumptuous) and private laboratories of Dr. Pfeffer. On the north side of the basement is a small, cool plant house attached to building. Here Dr. Pfeffer is just new working (with auxonometer) on the force of drooping of leaves in "sleep". The petioles are stiffened with
wire, so that only drooping of blade is considered, and a fine wire is placed through blade, and passed over pulley of auxonometer. In the basement is a store-room for glass-ware. Students pay 1/3 of the breakage. Some departments, like chemistry, charge full price. A dark room for photography on East side. A small cool room, with cooling chamber in a double walled box, with packing. Cooling. A store room for Bacteriological ware, etc. A workshop, with necessary machinery and tools, vices, etc. A constant temperature room in [[end page]] [[start page]] [[in upper right corner]] 207 [[/in upper right corner]] the basement, with an electric thermostat, - i.e. one making and breaking electric connections. This is kept at 28°C (=82.4° F.). There is a special furnace for heating, and coke is used. The mechanism turns the hot air in or out. A gas-motor room contains presses which are capable of producing pressure of 1200 atmospheres. An ice-chest stands in the hall. A distilling room with automatic distilling apparatus. A cool room for paraffin work in warm weather. A special laboratory in which now an advanced student is trying to determine the effect of acetylene gas on plants.
A room contains appliance for quick heating of water. A large gas flame heats water passed through a slender coil. A small room, on west side, for photomicrography, cork with ultra rays, etc. The plan of the building is here shown: [[image - pen drawing of plan of building]] [[image label]] Entrance to 2-story lecture hall Exp. Plant-house (cool) Corridor Entrance Street Johannis Allee. Experimental plant house - soils, etc. Entrance. [[image label]] [[image - arrow pointing to the north]] [[end page]] [[start page]] 209 Dr. Pfeffer's laboratories are equipped with a great variety of apparatus, but most of the apparatus is simple, and of his own designing and home make. I returned to dinner, as the gardens are closed from 12 to 2. After dinner we all started out for the Botanical Garden, with the intention of going on to the book & printing exhibition and the great [[underlined]] Denkemal [[/underlined]] erected in memory of the German, Austrian and Russian who fell at the battle of Leipzig. I took photos 7 and (in the garden) 1, [[insertion]] ^ 8, [[/insertion]] and 3. The Botanical Garden is not large. There are small systematic groups
of plants, and small habitat groups like [[underlined]] Cactaceae [[/underlined]] , [[underlined]] Sedum [[/underlined]], etc. we then walked towards the Denkmal, and stopped to take photos, 4 and 29, of the Russian Memorial Chapel. I damaged my tripod here and returned to the city for repairs, while Bertha and Paul went on. Leipzig is a clean place. The people seem very different from those of Berlin, - they are cleaner (morally) and less pompous. There is an intellectual atmosphere about the city similar to that of Prague. Spent the evening in writing, and in packing for tomorrow's early trip to Halla. [[end page]] [[start page]] 211 T [[underlined]] Aug. 21, 1914. [[/underlined]] Praha. .29.
