"Mister" is used colloquial > acquaintance, nor a friend neither a stranger; male. -- Formally "Herr" means Mister. The abbreviation for Herr is Hr., just as mister is Mr. over here (USA). -- "von" is a title of the lower gentry and has nothing to with Hr. of Fr. or Frl. (Herr, Frau, Fraeulein). I.E.: Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (German poet). Comment by: rwssr
