Black velvet smoking cap, with flower embroidery and a tassel.

Franz Hartmann, a faithful student and intimate friend of Hahnemann, who took part in early proving, wrote:

How grateful to him was the leisure he allowed himself when, after finishing his evening’s work, he sat in his easy chair from 8 o’clock in the evening onwards, in his dressing gown and velvet cap, with his boots off, smoking his pipe and drinking a glass of mild beer!                               Allg. hom. Ztg., Vol 26, No 12, 1844
