6 In February 1909 Hendrik Willem penned in his diary that life was so uneventful and calm that there was hardly anything worthwhile to write about. The next few entries mention that at age twenty-seven he already weighed 219 pounds; that a Holland Club had been founded in Munich for which Hendrik Willem served as secretary (he was very skeptical about its chance of success); and—the last entry of this diary, on 1 April—that the first Zeppelin on its maiden flight had visited Munich, an event that the Associated Press had asked Hendrik Willem to cover.
