Re: Gum & the commercial ?

Thanks, Tom...do you read German?  If so, often, that
journal contained lots of stuff on gum that was quoted in
the BJP, plus the Trifolium of Watzek, Kuhn, and Henneberg
(sp) among other famous gummists lived there.

Though I know French, and took Latin, Italian, and Japanese,
I am so ignorant on German that I thought Austrians spoke
Austrian :)
