That is why I make it brief and remain, with best regards between our households, yours, Born. 237. To Max Born [Berlin, on or after 16 June 1922][1] Dear Born, Guillaume is deranged and also got completely carried away in Paris.[2] I already put much effort into convincing him,[3] just as did Langevin. It’s all futile. There’s
