Differential cross-section measurements for the reaction e- + p --> e- + n + pi+ in the region of the N*(1236) resonance are compared with the dispersion theories of Adler and Zagury at four-momentum transfers between 1.2 and 15.3 F^-2 using the pion form factor as a free parameter. The results suggest a form factor similar to that of the proton.
