to thank me for this small modification. Again, most cordially yours truly,

[Paris, 10 April 1922]
After ten productively busy days in Paris, I send you friendly greetings; your old
A. Einstein
140. From Paul Langevin
Paris, 10 April 1922
My dear Friend,
I think this letter, along with its enclosure, will reach you at the moment of your
return to Berlin, to tell you one more time how happy I was to see you again and to
work with you toward repairing, within the limits of our powers, the immense dam-
age caused by the war.
I would like to know whether you returned without undue fatigue. Rest assured
that your visit, despite the effort it demanded of you, was an excellent thing and that
it produced here the best impression, far exceeding what I would have dared to
hope.
I had the embarrassment of not finding the slip of paper on which you had writ-
ten the address to which I should send your
money.—[1]
Would you please give it
to me again so that I can acquit myself of this obligation as soon as possible?
Please present my respectful regards to Mrs. Einstein and believe me to be your
very affectionately devoted servant,
P. Langevin.
141. To Ilse Einstein

Dear Ilse,
So, I made it here safely today at 2 o’clock in the morning and received your
correspondence.[1]
The court hearing is only taking place
tomorrow.[2]
I still have
to stay here on Thursday because of an
experiment.[3]
So I’m not coming until
