school
now.[2]
The photographs went
out.[3]
Now we’re feeling quite well. Teddy
also had the flu. We’re going to have to move out by April 1st but I don’t quite know
where we’ll end up; I’ll write you when I
do.[4]
We’re excited about this summer,
at the
castle.[5]
Hopefully we can somehow play music together then, as well. I, for
inst., played the Tartini sonata in G
minor[6]
and am very keen on hearing it played
nicely for once. I’m also tackling something completely new. I’m learning to
dance; imagine that! The modern things are more Negro [Neger]—than dancing,
but there’s no harm in that. You asked about 4,000 marks: they’re from Dresdener
Bank, as refund for the year
1919.[7]
Recently, I’ve been playing piano quite a lot,
I accompany Prof. von
Gonzenbach[8]
and Miss
Hurwitz,[9]
for instance, too. The
double bass is flourishing as well; we played in two concerts
again.[10]
It’s a pity that nothing came of that light
experiment.[11]
What are they doing
with the gyroscopes, by the way? Did they finish the suspension mechanism
already or
not?[12]
How did the ice box and its competitor turn
out?[13]
We’re notic-
ing that we’re heading for the Matura finals now, all right; there’s a sense of wrap-
ping up our studies.
Many greetings from,
Adn.

[Zurich, between 12 February and 4 March
1922][1]
Dear Papa,
I’m better again now and can go back to
school.[2]
I’m very excited about the
summer as well. If we can play music then, I can do a bit of accompaniment, too.
I can already play a piece by Corelli and a couple of gavottes.
Many greetings from
Teddy.
51. To Madeleine Rolland[1]
Berlin, 15 February 1922
Esteemed Madam,
I surely do not need to tell you how highly I value the cause in which you have
placed your service, and how very pleased I am to receive an invitation from you
to your meeting in upper
Italy.[2]
If I am unable to accept this invitation it is not for
lack of interest or the courage to profess it, but for the following reason: ever since
my theories received such an astonishing degree of popularity, I am being invited
