Wemyss in Modern Astrology May/1933 quotes Zenit, 8/1932, where the Ashmole mss has 9:30 AM.

Sy Scholfield quotes from "Die Kaisergruft bei den Kapuzinern in Wien" by Cölestin Wolfsgruber (Vienna, 1887), p. 158: "Kaiser Leopold I. ... Auf dem Reichstag zu Regenspurg 1640 brachte ein Curier aus Wien dem Kaiser die fröhliche Zeitung, dass Ihre Maj. den 9. Juni Morgens um 4 Uhr, dess vierten Printzens genesen. Die Kindstauff ist noch selbigen Tag gegen Abend um 6 Uhr im grossen Saal gehalten worden."

Translation: Emperor Leopold I. ... To the Diet at Regensburg a courier from Vienna brought the Emperor the cheerful news that his Majesty on 9 June 1640 in the morning at 4 o'clock, had a fourth prince. The child's baptism was held in the evening at 6 o'clock in the great hall on the same day.
