THE “Jugenderimierimgen ernes Chemikers,” which the late Prof. Wöhler contributed to the Journal of the German Chemical Society in 1875, contains a delightful sketch of the personal relations in which the great German chemist stood to his illustrious master; and Dr. Hermann's account of Wöhler's life and works, published in the same journal for 1882, serves to fill in the details of the picture. The story of Wöhler's visit to Stockholm, of his intercourse with Berzelius, and of the influence which it exerted on the development of his scientific life, are now well known to chemists.
