proposals without refusing them. The government will soon be paying you 3000
marks again for the time being, and the remainder will manifest itself after my
return.[8]
So give me a sound scolding, but don’t annoy me, because I am supposed to be
relaxing & must have my way.
Cordially yours,
Haber

86. To Pauline Einstein
[Zurich,] Thursday. [7 August
1919][1]
Dear Mother,
Just before taking my leave of Zurich, this letter. Tonight I am going to be with
my friend Habicht in
Schaffhausen,[2]
tomorrow it’s onwards via Sigmaringen to
Mr. Brandhuber, with whom I’m staying only briefly in order to make good on an
old
promise.[3]
I spent three more fine days here with Albert, in which we played
much music, worked on the flying machine, and yesterday went sailing in a stiff
wind.[4]
Yesterday evening from 6–7, I had a taste of Uncle, Ogden, Alice, the old
Mrs. Steinhardt, Robert, and
Alfred.[5]
Supper at home subsequently revived my
optimism and strength. Those are abhorrent people, devoid of substance; only
Alice is really of the better sort. I am leaving here with greater reassurance because
I know you are in such excellent care in a neutral setting where nothing can disturb
you.[6]
The main thing is that you let yourself calmly finish the cure and stay in
good spirits. Then hopefully it won’t be so long before you can travel to
us.[7]

Yesterday I also met Edith, who is very nice to me, although gratitude naturally
does play a part, owing to the doctoral
thesis.[8]
Now I quickly better get down to packing, or else I’ll miss my train. Best regards
also to Maja &
Pauli,[9]
yours,
Albert.
Friendly greetings to the nurse, also to Mrs.
Dann.[10]
