1. "As for his height, I would put it at no more than five feet nine inches — he being fully erect, out of his monkey crouch — and yet he brazenly put down five feet eleven on all forms and applications … He wore glasses, the lenses thick and greasy, which distorted the things of the world into unnatural shapes.

Entdeckung des Planeten Uranus gefallen sei.[Pitchblende] consists of a peculiar, distinct, metallic substance.
