I hope that you will notify me when I can be of any service to you here. I definitely
count on your visiting me here once at Oxford, as promised. When do you think
that this would be possible?– Once again, with best wishes for 1921, also from my
father, I remain, yours very truly,
F. A. Lindemann.

Dear Professor Einstein:
In reply to your letter of the 16th in which you inform me that the proposal made
by the University of Wisconsin is acceptable to you providing satisfactory terms
can be arranged by Mr. Paul Wahrburg or some one
I have to inform you
that I have telegraphed this information to the regents of the University of Wis-
I quite agree with you that it would be impossible for you to arrange a series of
lectures, and your suggestion that Mr. Wahrburg arrange this matter for you is an
excellent idea and I hope that satisfactory arrangements can be made for you to
come to the United
I am sure that you will receive a splendid welcome by
the American people and that they are anxious to both see and hear you.
If arrangements are made for you to come to the University of Wisconsin, as I
shall be at home at that time I hope to have the pleasure of calling on you and Mrs.
With kindest regards to you and Mrs. Einstein, I am,
A G Sch[medeman]
P. S. Since writing the foregoing letter I have received the following telegram from
the regents of the University of Wisconsin:
“Will attempt to arrange summer conferences as per my letter of
Warburg has satisfactory terms.”
