able person and donate the entire proceeds according to my own choice of charita-
ble causes.
With amicable regards to you and your
wife.[4]
P.S. I do have the urge to tell you again [that] Freundlich has, in fact, absolutely no
right to the manuscript and that I insist his entire conduct was dishonest and
odious.[5]
147. From Jacques Hadamard[1]
Paris, 2[5] Humboldt Street, 16 April 1922
My dear Colleague,
The project for which I submitted the text to you has just appeared in the Cahiers
de la Ligue des Droits de
l’Homme.[1]
The text that just appeared is exactly the one
I submitted to you: consequently, just as I said to you, it should not be considered
definitive. I would, of course, nevertheless be very happy to have your opinion and
that of Mr. von Gerlach on
it.[2]
I enclose with this letter a notice (I do not know whether you have taken note of
others) showing you that you have definitely attained Parisian glory.
In the hope that your stay in Paris leaves you nothing but good memories, which
will be repeated, believe me yours most devotedly,
J. Hadamard.
148. To Heinrich J. Goldschmidt
Berlin, 17 April 1922
Dear Mr. Goldschmidt,
From a cousin of Dr. Paul
Hertz,[1]
Mrs. Francis
Sklarek,[2]
I hear that a certain
possibility exists that Dr. Hertz be assigned translation work through you. I would
not like to fail to heartily recommend to you this man, who fell into difficult mate-
rial circumstances as a consequence of the war. Mr. Hertz is not only a talented
theoretical physicist but also a man of rare general cultivation and an outstandingly
gifted critic. You can be confident that work completed by him will meet the high-
est standards.
With most amicable regards to you, your wife, and your
son,[3]
yours.
