    Re: a certain Herr

    no no, I'm asking why it's said certain for a Herr?

    why its not only a Herr, but a certain Herr? what does certain mean?

    A particular Herr Edward Mann. With more context I might be able to help you more.

    In the dying light of an autumn day in 1937, a certain Herr
    Edward Mann, a secret agent, descended from a first-class railway
    carriage in the city of New York.
