With amicable regards to you and your wife.[4] P.S. I do have the urge to tell you again [that] Freundlich has, in fact, absolutely no right to the manuscript and that I insist his entire conduct was dishonest and odious.[5] 147. From Jacques Hadamard[1] Paris, 2[5] Humboldt Street, 16 April 1922 My dear Colleague, The project for which I submitted the text to you has just appeared in the Cahiers de la Ligue des Droits de l’Homme.[1] The text that just appeared is exactly the one I submitted to you: consequently, just as I said to you, it should not be considered definitive. I would, of course, nevertheless be very happy to have your opinion and that of Mr. von Gerlach on it.[2] I enclose with this letter a notice (I do not know whether you have taken note of others) showing you that you have definitely attained Parisian glory. In the hope that your stay in Paris leaves you nothing but good memories, which will be repeated, believe me yours most devotedly, J. Hadamard. 148. To Heinrich J. Goldschmidt Berlin, 17 April 1922 Dear Mr. Goldschmidt, From a cousin of Dr. Paul Hertz,[1] Mrs. Francis Sklarek,[2] I hear that a certain possibility exists that Dr. Hertz be assigned translation work through you. I would not like to fail to heartily recommend to you this man, who fell into difficult mate- rial circumstances as a consequence of the war. Mr. Hertz is not only a talented theoretical physicist but also a man of rare general cultivation and an outstandingly gifted critic. You can be confident that work completed by him will meet the high- est standards. With most amicable regards to you, your wife, and your son,[3] yours.
