Jepson Field Book volume 15 page 168
Berlin, Germany  - The afternoon being pleasant Diels invited me to go on a walk to Grunewald. He pointed out the most interesting plant formations, as we walked along the little glacial lakes of this region. The woods are planted woods but the swamps are original and are separating lakes or encroaching upon them. We  passed through the court of the Yagd-Schloss [?] or Emperors hunting lodge; deer horns of deer killed by the Emperor and bearing the royal crest, adorn the walls of the court. We went on to a characteristic German resort -- where Diels said laughingly: "You will now excuse me if I take a ::::::::: April, 10, 1906.  drink"! We had a very good Munich bier. Diels remarked that the consumption of liquor is distinctly declining, i.e., it is not so universal. In a company of officers or students it is not unusual for one to see someone who refuses to drink beer. Ten years ago such a thing was unheard of; it would have been impossible. The Bavarians make the best beer. The Bavarians are the least intellectual of the Germans. Nurnberg is in Bavaria but is not "Bavarian" except politically.  Diels did the ferns for the Naturlichen Pflanzen-familien; has worked the Anonaceae; determined collections of Chinese plants; African plants; collected two years in Australia
