papers from recent years, as you wished. Unfortunately, I have no offprints left of
just those I would have most liked to send you. Your announced offprints have not
yet arrived.
Thanking you once again for your kind letter, I am with cordial regards to you,
Mrs. Curie, and Langevin, your old
A. Einstein.
115. To Paul Ehrenfest
[Berlin,] 28 September 1919
Dear Ehrenfest,
Today I was at the Dutch Embassy. My application has been forwarded to the
Passport Center, The
Hague.[1]
I ask you now please to direct an urgent request to
them right away that the authorization be sent out from there very promptly. Oth-
erwise it takes at least 3–4 weeks. I will leave a few days after the permit arrives.
Cordial regards, and to a joyful reunion, yours,
Einstein.
116. From Pauline Einstein
Rosenau Sanat[orium], Lucerne, 28 September 1919
My dear Children,
How much I would have liked to have answered your last letter, which brought
me so much pleasure, long ago, but it is getting increasingly difficult and my con-
dition is ever more
precarious.[1]
In the meantime, Erna (née Levi) came quite un-
expectedly to visit me, that is, she first corresponded with Maja. Those days really
did me much good & now I am looking forward to Guste, who will arrive here at
the latest on
Wednesday.[2]
How kind it is of these friends to undertake the tiring journey & these expenses.
You don’t have to say anything, d[ear]
Fanny,[3]
I know that you simply cannot
come. It’s as bitter for me as for you. I am glad that all of you are well. Now you
will soon be looking forward to Leyden, d[ear]
Albert.[4]
I willingly believe that
you have much to do, d[ear] Else; be sure not to let it be too wearing. Greetings &
kisses to all of you & to the children, yours,
Pauline.
