But if O. really has acted this way in Utrecht, as is now becoming probable (it is not yet certain), then it is gradually becoming a duty to erect a dam against this business, which is beginning to become aggressive. If you happen to find the chance to write a nice little letter to the De Haases[13] one of these days, it would be appreciated! Cordial regards, yours, Ehrenfest 83. From Paul Winteler Fiesole V. Verdi 8 [13 March 1922] [Not selected for translation.] 84. To Thomas Barclay [Berlin,] 14 March 1922 Dear Sir Thomas Barclay– With reference to your kind inquiry[1] I can inform you that I am coming to Paris on March 27th for ca. 10 days in order to give a few talks at the Collège de France.[2] Considering my imperfect knowledge of the Fren[ch] language, m[y] duties thus already assumed will be a very great effort for me so it will be scarcely possible for me to follow yet another invitation to speak at the S[ociété] de Phy- sique. However, it will be a great pleasure for me to discuss with [Mr.] P[ainlevé][3] scientif. questions of mutual interest to us. In hope of seeing you again in Paris, I am, with amic. greetings, sincerely yours 85. To Maurice Solovine Berlin, 14 March 1922 Dear Solovine, To a happy reunion in Paris! I’m arriving there on the 27th or 28th of March.[1] Langevin is arranging a hideout for me that he will divulge to you but which I ask you please to keep strictly secret for the days of my Parisian stay will be very exhausting as it is.[2]
