70. To Hans Albert and Eduard Einstein
4 July 1920
Dear Albert and dear Tete,
I long so much to see you again.[1] Since you, d[ear Hans] Albert, are away from
the middle of July until the middle of August, nothing can be changed now.[2] After
that, you have school again there.[3] From September 10th to 25th, I have obliga-
tions in Germany.[4] But then I am free. So I suggest that we meet at the end of
September for one or two weeks at my friend’s house, the priest Camillo
Brandhuber in Benzingen near Sigmaringen.[5] It would be too expensive and com-
plicated in Switzerland.[6] For you, it’s just a short trip and physically refreshing at
the same time. There we are in excellent hands and it’s very casual. If you don’t
have holidays at that time, then we must simply apply for leave from school for this
short time. The rector[7] will understand that a father also has to see his boys from
time to time. It’s rare enough as it is. Then I’ll pick you up in Sigmaringen once I
know exactly when you are arriving.
I hope you have received the 1,000 francs.[8] In one month I hope to be able to
send remittances again. Under the current conditions, it’s not so easy; but I’m hop-
ing to be able to pull you through in Zurich, after all.[9]
Make inquiries at the German consulate, d. Albert, about what is required in or-
der for you to obtain the travel permit. But also say that you are the son of the Berlin
resident Prof. Einstein; otherwise nothing can be achieved.
Warm greetings to you both and to Mama,[10] and do write back soon, yours,
