61. To Pauline Einstein
[Berlin, 16 June 1919]
Dear Mother,
I am very glad about your report that the pain has
subsided.[1]
On the 28th I’ll
be traveling and will then come as soon as possible to you all in
Lucerne.[2]
I’ll
commute back and forth between Lucerne and Zurich, squeezing my lectures there
into half a week, if
possible.[3]
In a Dutch newspaper it was reported that both ex-
peditions obtained successful images of the solar
eclipse,[4]
so the result should be
publicized within 6 weeks.
Heartfelt greetings to all of you, yours,
Albert.
62. From Heinrich Zangger
[Zurich, before 18 June
1919][1]
Dear friend Einstein,
Your letter reached me just after my return from Lucerne & a visit with your
mother. Before the report by the doctor, Fräulein Tobler, I knew nothing about your
mother being in
Switzerland.[2]
The pain is subsiding a little, the swelling in the
legs is very heavy (compression of the leg vein or thrombosis in the lower pelvis).
Furthermore, painful anesthesia for the pain—Less upon [use of Temperophoren].
Sketch: Thigh from the side after the analgesic spot.
You will probably show this to a doctor of your ac-
quaintance. The reflexes, etc. otherwise intact; same
on both sides.
Your mother is very much looking forward to your
coming. Come soon. Lecture in Zurich on 2 succes-
sive days so that you could stay much with your
mother.[3]
In her thoughts she is constantly with the
South American solar eclipse—is worried about
whether the solar dimming doesn’t do
harm.[4]
How delighted she is about your
confidence, with an alacrity that we younger ones cannot always muster.
You are optimistic about Germany, that good in the nation will prevail. Yet Ba-
varia should secede & unite with Austria, as [Stodola] always maintained. Muehlon
is vehemently against that. I don’t
know.[5]
Why shouldn’t Planck come, circumstances
permitting?[6]
I only do solid busi-
ness in physics, with good polymaterials: Planckeinstein. Weyl is coming today to
visit me. Do write to him, he will be pleased. I heard his course lecture. One
