1, Hahnemann, Chr. Krank., 1, 33; 2, Hartlaub, ibid; 3, N-g, ibid.; (footnote, page 206) "With merely these two letters, Doctors Hartlaub and Trinks designate a man (a true 'anonymity'), who has furnished the greatest number of symptoms for their 'Annals,' whose symptoms are often expressed in a careless, diffuse, and indefinite manner. I could only extract what was useful, believing that, in these observations, he has been a truthful and careful person; still it is scarcely to be expected that, in this work -the most indispensable pillar of our therapeutic art- requiring such great and careful discretion, acuteness of sense, fine powers of observation, and strict criticism of one's own sensations and observations, as well as a correct choice of expression, the homoeopathic public should place implicit belief in an unknown person, designated with only two letters, 'N-g.'" 4, Schreter, ibid; 5, Trinks, ibid; 6, Bute, ibid.
"The greatest error in your Vol. I is the translation and reprint of one of the greatest blunders Hah-n ever made footnote, page 206. It would be a long story to tell you how Hahnemann could have been talked into such a horribility as this note. Only the impudent, malicious, and ignorant opposition of Trinks can excuse it a little. What Hahnemann says in his letter to Stapf explains the indignation he felt against this horribly ignorant and devilishly malicious Trinks. Hartlaub was only his tool. All that Hahnemann. says about the anonymousness is nonsense. There was no such thing. N-g was a surgeon near Budweis in Bohemia, a candid, upright, well-meaning man, not very learned; his name was Nenning, and everybody knew it. According to the laws of his country he had no right to practice except as a surgeon. A lameness of the right arm disabled him from following his calling. His wife commenced a school and instructed girls in millinery; she supported the family by this. Nenning became acquainted with homoeopathy, and soon was an ardent admirer. He had the grand idea to aid the cause by making provings on the girls in his wife's millinery shop. He succeeded in persuading them. Unluckily enough he came in connection with Hartlaub in Leipzig, instead of with Hahnemann himself. All Austrians were forbidden by a strict law to send anything outside of Austria to be printed; hence not only Nenning, but all other Austrians, appeared in our literature with only initials, Watzke as `G.,' etc.; this shocking law was abolished, but Hartlaub continued his N-g. In Roth's Razzia a most infamous use was made of this note by Hahnemann. "Since 1828, when N-g. first appeared in public with Plumbum Metallicum Plumbum, a medicine in which I was personally interested as having been the first prover of it, N-g. was studied with the greatest attention by myself, and in forty-eight years nothing but corroborations and confirmations have been experienced. My proposition to you is to cut this sham of our master out of the plate."
