for the sake of peace—I had always tried to weaken these conflicts by laughter and
congenial talking around it. But if O. really has acted this way in Utrecht, as is now
becoming probable (it is not yet certain), then it is gradually becoming a duty to
erect a dam against this business, which is beginning to become aggressive.
If you happen to find the chance to write a nice little letter to the De
Haases[13]
one of these days, it would be appreciated!
Cordial regards, yours,
Ehrenfest

84. To Thomas Barclay
[Berlin,] 14 March 1922
Dear Sir Thomas Barclay–
With reference to your kind
inquiry[1]
I can inform you that I am coming to Paris
on March 27th for ca. 10 days in order to give a few talks at the Collège de
France.[2]
Considering my imperfect knowledge of the Fren[ch] language, m[y]
duties thus already assumed will be a very great effort for me; so it will be scarcely
possible for me to follow yet another invitation to speak at the S[ociété] de Phy-
sique. However, it will be a great pleasure for me to discuss with [Mr.]
P[ainlevé][3]
scientif. questions of mutual interest to us. In hope of seeing you again in Paris, I
am, with amic. greetings, sincerely yours
85. To Maurice Solovine
Berlin, 14 March 1922
Dear Solovine,
To a happy reunion in Paris! I’m arriving there on the 27th or 28th of
March.[1]
Langevin is arranging a hideout for me that he will divulge to you but which I ask
you please to keep strictly secret; for the days of my Parisian stay will be very
exhausting as it
is.[2]
