In 1848/49 Emil Du-Bois Reymond (1818 - 1896) published the first two volumes of his Untersuchungen über thierische Elektricität, one of the path breaking works in the emerging field of electrophysiology. Volume II was dedicated to his deeply admired mentor Alexander von Humboldt (1769 - 1859), who in turn opened up the opportunity for the young scientist to present his findings to the Académie des Sciences in Paris. So in 1850 Du-Bois Reymond traveled to Paris to defend his ideas, two years later a trip to London followed. During this journeys he kept a travel diary (transcription) as a reference for his contacts and meetings. This month's image depicts a scribble on the last page of this diary.
