1) Carlyle used the collocation "our little Friend" more than once in this biography, possibly helping identify him:

2) "Leaders did not know then...." in context apparently refers to circa 1190. Here, any leader subsequent might qualify?

3) A question: our Berlin Friend or a visitor who learned there?

4) Might one have learned from the other?

H. N. Y.
