Sy Scholfield quotes from Göttliche Wahrheiten aus meinem Leben: Erinnerungen eines Schweizer Historikers by Paul Letter (Frieling, 2001), p. 10: "Galgenen, einem ländlich-stillen Weiler in schöner, milder Landschaft. Ich wurde geboren am 21. Oktober 1922, morgens acht Uhr, in dem als Wohn- und Gasthaus dienenden Haus des Grossvaters mütterlicherseits, das heute noch, etwas modernisiert, steht."

(Galgenen, a rural and quiet hamlet in a beautiful, mild landscape. I was born on 21 October 1922 at eight o'clock in the morning in the house of my grandfather's maternal grandfather).
