Haldane Berlin, 11 September 1922 Highly esteemed Lord Haldane, I thank you cordially for your favorable reply and for your very valuable support.[1] I have nothing against my name being mentioned to those to whom you forward the article. The only thing I would like to avoid is that my name appear in the German papers in this connection via British newspapers because that would embroil me in difficulties in an unuseful way. I would just like to add that I heard that German businesses are currently falling under the influence of foreign [cap]ital at a rapidly rising rate, which naturally means a steadily growing obstacle to a large-scale solution to the problem along Rechberg’s lines. This seems to be but one more reason to act promptly. I also received the Bergson book and read part of it but have not yet been able to make up my mind about it finally. [2] In repeating my thanks for your kind support, I am, with all due respect, sin- cerely yours, A. Einstein. 350. From Franz Selety Vienna I, 11 Zedlitz Street, 11 September 1922 Esteemed Professor, Along with this letter I am sending you, esteemed Professor, the offprint of my paper, which just recently appeared in the Ann. d. Ph[ysik], on the possibility of an infinite world,[1] about which I already wrote you in January. It is naturally of great- est interest to me to become acquainted with your assessment. I hope very much that I shall have a chance to learn of it. For the great generosity and kindness you have hitherto always shown toward me, I am ever very grateful to you. Hoping that you will continue to preserve your kind favor toward me, I am sin- cerely, Dr. Franz Selety.
