planned state budget for 1919 in December 1919 the Constituent Prussian Assem-

search (printed matter no. 1612 section 233).” I have opened initial contacts with

developments in this matter.

She often invited me, of course, but I never managed to visit
her & now all has been lost. I shall treasure the picture; I have the pictures with both
children on them. Mrs. Einstein wrote me your son also used to be like that. Permit
me to convey my wishes to Mrs. Maja as well. Also best wishes to your esteemed
wife, in all due respect,
Greti Moser.
