50. From Roland Holder
Küsnacht, Zürich, 30 May 1919
Highly esteemed Prof. Einstein,
I noted with pleasure your kind letter of the 18th
instant[1]
and I thank you heart-
ily for your kind attitude.
It is not only a pleasure for me but an honor to be able to offer your son some-
thing of my modest experience, and my pleasure should be redoubled if the little
that I am in the position to give to your son can be of practical use.
Your son’s extremely effortless adaptability will make the lessons agreeable for
me.
In thanking you again for your friendly letter, I am, with utmost respect, your
most devoted servant,
Rol. Holder.
