Source Notes

Sy Scholfield quotes "Die Heimat des Fürsten W." by Joachim Winsmann (epubli), p. 38: "Ich habe nicht erwähnt – doch das ist vielleicht uninteressant, daß ich dort geboren wurde, am 4. Mai 1860 um sechs Uhr abends, im großen Schlafzimmer, das über dem „Säulen-Zimmer“ lag." Translation: I did not mention - but that is perhaps uninteresting that I was born there on May 4, 1860 at six o'clock in the evening, in the master bedroom above the "pillar room".
