pleased about that. At the end of next week, perhaps Thursday, I want to go to Heil-
bronn, from there to
Hechingen.[4]
I’d like to meet you along the way in order to
accompany you then on your return trip via Frankfurt. But these are preliminary
plans; whether they will be realized is a second question. Yesterday I went into your
apartment;[5]
I conscientiously looked through your mail. Some things could be
among them that needed to be immediately dealt with. Weinstein wrote you that
he’d like to speak with you. You may set a
time.[6]
Miss Sidy Fischer, chem. stud.,
argues in a finely composed letter that she would like to become your secretary; she
requested an answer. You had supposedly already written to her three years ago
from Zurich. I answered both very shortly and correctly: Prof. E. is traveling in
Switzerland for the time being. That way these people don’t have to wait in vain.
You have me as secretary; I am entirely at your disposal in this regard!–
I imagine you’ll be staying in Zurich; you do want to use the time available to
you to see the children daily? You’ll get much more out of that than if you went
hiking. Follow my advice. Greet Mr. Zangger for me. Don’t forget to buy a gift for
the
child.–[7]
A warm hug from me! In response to your “best regards”!
Elsa.
Vol. 8, 113d. From Elsa Einstein
[Berlin, 5 September 1915]
Dear Albert,
Sunday today, without any news from you. It’s been a week, and just three slim
cards the whole
time.[1]
So, could you keep your promise? You did want to please
me so much with your letters.–
Meanwhile you saw the
children.[2]
How did they welcome you? I’m always
thinking about that, for days. And otherwise? There are so many things I’d like to
ask you; do pull yourself together and write a proper letter.–
At home everything’s taking its usual course. Last night I was visiting the F’s in
Grunewald; they’re really true friends of mine. The children are dear. Healthwise
I’m “on top of it” again. No more news from the “[New Fatherland] League” any-
more, what a
pity![3]
I’m counting the days until you’re back home again. I’m hop-
ing to be able to depart on
Thursday.[4]
Affec. gr. and a kiss,
Elsa
In case I do travel, I’ll go first to Heilbronn.
