Do you have facilities for experimenting on a large scale? Through Zangger’s inter-
cession,
perhaps?[4]
I have no contacts with people in this branch.
Cordial greetings,
Albert.
96. To Robert A. Millikan, Paul Epstein, and
Richard C. Tolman
Berlin, 20 March 1922
Dear Colleagues,
I
learned[1]
that a certain possibility exists for my colleague Dr. Bródy to be
employed at your institute. As I know Mr.
Bródy[2]
to be an unusually gifted theo-
retical physicist, I would not like to fail to recommend him herewith most warmly.
I consider this a duty, particularly because as a consequence of a hearing impair-
ment Mr. Bródy comes only secondarily into consideration for teaching positions;
so, considering the current oversupply of scientific professionals and the prevailing
general impoverishment in this country, he as a foreigner would find it very hard to
obtain a position in which his capabilities could be suitably employed.
With cordial regards, I am yours.
97. From Thomas Barclay
Paris, 17 Pasquier Street, 20 March 1922
Dear Professor Einstein,
I am very happy to learn from your letter of the 14th
instant[1]
that you received
the invitation. I showed your letter to Mr. Painlevé who was just eating lunch with
me here at home at the very moment of its arrival and who was very happy about
this news.
I settled with Mr. Langevin (so as not to have any conflicting engagements) to
ask you to give me the pleasure of sharing the midday meal with me on Saturday,
April 1st.
I would be happy to know if it would be possible for you to accept my invitation
on the set day.
I am, dear Professor Einstein, very devotedly yours,
Thomas Barclay.
