* Friendly letter from the author Countess Ida Hahn-Hahn (1805-1880) to Konstantin Karl Falkenstein (1801-1855), who was senior librarian of the royal Saxon Library (now Saxon State Library) in Dresden, where Countess Hahn also lived. She was confined at home with measles: 'noch Zimmergefangene, kann mich aber etwas beschäftigen', and asks for a few books, one about the Knights Templar: 'eine Geschichte des Tempelordens, sowie ungefähr die des Malteser Ordens von Abbé Vertot', and also 'ein dramatisches Gedicht von Zacharias Werner: "Die Söhne des Thales".'

Hahn-Hahn and Falkenstein both figure in the diary of Hans Christian Andersen, when he visited Dresden in 1844.
