His favorite pastime was the study of natural history, was a skilled taxidermist, and had made a very fine collection of stuffed birds and small animals, birds’ eggs and nests, minerals, etc. Died a Lutheran, but I remember his saying that too much account was still being made of some things in his church, not essential in religion” (from Heinrich Gernhardt and His Descendants, pg. 196).
