Sy Scholfield quotes from Friedrich Joachim Stengel ... 1694-1787 by Karl Lohmeyer (Saarbrücker Druckerei und Verlag, 1911), p. 3: "in Zerbst...Dieser Täufling, der den Tag zuvor, am 29 September 1694 morgens zwischen 7 und 8 Uhr das Licht der Welt erblickt hatte, war dazu bestimmt, in der Baukunst des kommenden 18. Jahrhunderts eine hervorragende Rolle zu spielen."

(in Zerbst... This chap, who had seen the light of the world the day before, on 29 September 1694 in the morning between 7 and 8 o'clock, was destined to play an outstanding role in the architecture of the coming eighteenth century).
