In speaking of the poet"s scientific interests he told us of his discovery of the intermaxillary bone & of Goethe"s ceaseless efforts to acquire truth.</p>

poet, statesman, scientist, he seems to have been ""everything by turns and nothing long"", 
except indeed a lover [...].&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;11. We had been much intrigued with Mrs Robson"s description of the Sorrows of Werther, 
especially when our friend warned us that those who came under the spell of this book usually 
commited suicide after reading it. We felt accordingly grateful to Mrs. Robson who had read it 
on our behalf, and flirted with death for our sakes, and not a little apprehensive when Janet 
Rawlings read us an extract from it. All passed off well, however. [...]&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;12. George Burrow read a song from Goethe"s Gefunden.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;13. Mary Robson sang ""My peace is o"er"" from Faust.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;14. A Reading from the same play was given by Elisabeth &amp; Victor Alexander&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;15. Another song ""Little wild rose, wild rose red."" was sung by Mary Robson.&lt;/p&gt;
&lt;p&gt;16. Finally Charles E. Stansfield gave us his paper on Goethe. He referred to the lack of the 
political sense in the German people of those days, &amp; showed Goethe as quite content to 
acquiesce in the paternal government of his small state. He described the influence of 
Herde[,] Klopstock, Lessing, Shakespeare, &amp;, quaintly enough, of Goldsmith on Goethe.
In speaking of the poet"s scientific interests he told us of his discovery of the intermaxillary 
bone &amp; of Goethe"s ceaseless efforts to acquire truth.&lt;/p&gt; </ptr>
