Manthey sends his plan to establish an Institute of Technical Chemistry in Copenhagen to Ørsted in Paris. Although Ørsted is grateful for his patron's solicitude for his career, he confesses that he intends to dedicate his life to no less than scientific research. So instead, Ørsted sketches his own plan to found a Research Institute for Physics and Chemistry. By now it was obvious that Ørsted had not conformed to the purpose of the Cappel Foundation's travel grant. Ørsted did now own himself defeated by the fiasco of the Napoleon Prize, but a few days later he was dreadfully awakened from his slumber by news from his brother that Sophie Propsthein, who had been silent for months, had broken their engagement.

Keywords:   Ørsted's career, Manthey's plan to establish an institute of technical chemistry, Ørsted's plan to establish a research institute, Sophie Probsthein
