I hope with all my heart that you are doing reasonably well and that you don’t
have to suffer so very much in the
meantime.[5]
For now, affectionate greetings to you, Maja &
Pauli,[6]
yours,
Albert.

Highly esteemed Colleague,
About a week to a fortnight ago a declaration by intellectual workers of all coun-
tries appeared in the newspaper, which among oth[ers] you also
signed[2]
and
which has found much support here as well as a result of its exceptionally appeal-
ing content. The local “Study Group on Cultural Policy” (Council of Intellectual
Workers)[3]
has appointed me to ask you whether [a campaign for] additional sig-
natures or the like is being planned. That being the case, it would also want to join
in.
With utmost respect, devotedly,
Robert Holtzmann
Prof. of History at the University.
72. From Elsa Einstein
[Berlin, ca. 12 July
1919][1]
Dear Darling,
I’m forwarding this letter to you at the request of Natorp.[2] In the meantime
you’ll have heard from me several times. When I read that you wanted a telegram
from me, I was thrilled as I haven’t been for a long time. But that is certainly not
necessary anymore.– No news. My longing for you is great. I have a fortnight of
separation behind me.[3] Are you coming back to me in four weeks? I don’t want
to be selfish and must grant you your poor mother. But you should work toward that
already: Mother, even if you aren’t coming here immediately now,[4] I give you my
word of honor that I’ll come and get you as soon as it’s possible for you to travel.
Are you really in Lucerne Tuesday through
Saturday?[5]
I hope so. Think of it, it’s
really no loss if you miss the Phys.
Soc.,[6]
it really is more important that you be
with your mother.
