1. To Mileva Einstein-Maric; and Hans Albert Einstein
[Zurich, 10 January 1919]
Dear Mileva and dear Albert,
Your letter made me very happy. I would like to come back to the matter of the
skimpy
birdfeed[1]
when I return to Zurich. At the moment (until the 19th) I have
to leave on a business
trip.[2]
If I can arrange it, I’ll go to Arosa for a couple of days
to see
Tete.[3]
When Adn arrived yesterday with the letter, I was
here,[4]
but they
didn’t look for me properly. My train leaves in 2 hours. As regards health, inciden-
tally, I am feeling infinitely better than last
year.[5]
Wishing you both pleasant days for now, yours,
Papa or Albert, resp.
2. To Hedwig and Max Born[1]
[Zuoz, canton of Graubünden, 15 January 1919]

With brilliant sunshine and sweet chocolate, it’s grand to read about the goings-
on in Berlin from up
here.[3]
Monday the schoolmastering
begins.[4]
This nest Zuoz
is unbelievably attractive architecturally.
Warm greetings to you all, from your
Einstein.
We can’t return until about the 20th of
Feb.[5]
3. To Hedwig and Max Born
Arosa, [canton of Graubünden,] 19 January [1919]
[. .

Sparkling scenery and well-fed citizens who have nothing to fear. That is what
it looks like here. But God knows, I like people with cares, to whom the morrow
looms large with uncertainty. How will everything turn out? It’s difficult to take
one’s mind off the changed and still changing
Berlin.[2]
I think it will turn out well,
as I see it, when calm is restored again. The young people who have experienced
all this won’t become bourgeois so soon.
Warm regards from your
Einstein.
