Friedrich Ludwig Jahn (1778–1852), German pedagogue and politician. ALS. [Berlin], 10 Dec. 1815. Small 4°. 1 p. In German. To the historian Christian Friedrich Rühs (1781–1820), informing him that the anonymous pamphlet “Wünsche und Hoffnungen eines Rheinländers” are by J. F. Benzenberg, who had them printed as a manuscript in Paris, and authorizing Rühs to reprint as much of it as he likes – even the pamphlet in its entirety; he promises to clear the matter with Benzenberg. – The naturalist Benzenberg, the “first liberal of the Rhineland”, fought for reforms in his native country after the defeat of Napoleon. His anti-Prussian pamphlet, influenced by the Vienna Congress, was published in in 1815. – The fervent nationalist Jahn had founded the first “Turnverein” (Gymnastic club) in Berlin in 1811; the athleticism of his gymnastic cult combined physical discipline with Germanic patriotism and aggressive cultural nationalism. In 1813, he helped form the Lützow Corps and commanded one of its battalions against Napoleon. – Rühs was Professor of History in Berlin and was made Prussian historiographer in 1817.
