Affectionate greetings also to your wife, Aunt, and the whole little company,
from your
Einstein
Regards to
Aardenne.[23]
190. To Mileva Einstein-Maric;
[Berlin,] 5 December 1919
Dear Mileva,
Today I received your letter. It seems that a kind of vagrant existence is our des-
tiny. Under prevailing conditions I can understand you well. So we’ll postpone the
moving problem tentatively by half a
year.[1]
Time brings wisdom. You shall im-
mediately receive from Mr. Karr 4000 marks which, although not expendable in
Switzerland, certainly are expendable in
Hungary.[2]
If you wish, in the future I’ll
send your money to Dr.
Zürcher.[3]
I have not done so until now only because I did
not want to impose on him unnecessarily. In what manner should I have the requi-
site money reach Prof. Zangger and
Aegeri?[4]
Everything is so unclear to me; write
me more about that before you leave. Take little hand luggage along, just one small
suitcase that you can sit on in an emergency, or better yet, a small folding chair.
Traveling is presently awfully exhausting. I would prefer it, too, of course, if Albert
did not have to change schools, but not because he should finish as soon as
possible.[5]
He should be able to experience his schooling peacefully as long as he
is in the formative years and not think about a career too soon. I imagine he will
study engineering. To do so, he should get as much time as I also had.
Wishing you a good trip, yours,
Albert.
Don’t worry! If I can arrange it, I’ll gladly leave you together in Zurich, especially
if you manage to make do with less money. I might even succeed in earning foreign
currency and that way secure your stay in Zurich.
191. To Hans Albert and Eduard Einstein
[Berlin, 5 December
1919][1]
Dear Adn and dear Tete,
Your letters delighted me. I’ll send Tete the music he wants very soon. I am sorry
that you have to move yet again, d[ear] Tete, and this even before your performance
at school! I hope you don’t get the mumps from Albert just before the
departure.[2]
