The diaries of Karl August Varnhagen von Ense (1785-1858), a detailled chronicle of the years 1819-1830 and 1834-1858, with everyday entries of two to three pages, mention Froebel in the years of the Prussian reaction. The author was a good friend of Bertha von Marenholtz, it seems, and met Froebel himself.
