I forward to you at the same time the printer’s proofs of a critical analysis by
Reichenbach, in accordance with his
wish.[10]
Faithfully,

110. To Thomas Barclay
[Berlin,] 25 March 1922
Esteemed Sir Thomas Barclay–
I thank you cordially for your amic[able]
invitation.[1]
As I will be very
exhausted in Paris by m[y] commitments toward my professional colleagues, I have
made it a principle to avoid social events. That is why I ask you please not to take
it amiss if I cannot accept your invitation. At the same time I would not like to fail
to tell you even now that it would be a special treat for me to be able to spend a few
hours with you in Paris. In order to be able to uphold this principle without coming
into any conflicts, I would like to ask you please to invite at most 2 or 3 other per-
sons besides myself. If preparations made by you make this impossible, then please
kindly regard this invitation of yours as declined and give me an opportunity to be
able to spend a few hours with you another time.
111. To Zhu Jia-hua
Berlin, 25 March 1922
Dear Sir,
In thanking you very much for your letter of the 21st of this
mo.,[1]
I take this
opportunity to inform you about the status of my projected voyage to East Asia in
the fall of this yr., requesting that you please regard this information as confiden-
tial; for, I would like to avoid my travel plans becoming generally known in
advance because otherwise problems would arise for me in the form of additional
invitations, etc. I remember our discussions very clearly but had to desist from trav-
eling to China for the time being because the sojourn envisioned by you could not
possibly be brought in line with my other commitments; and moreover, the finan-
cial recompense offered me was not large enough to make the journey feasible.
