2 8 4 D O C U M E N T S 3 5 7 3 5 9 S E P T E M B E R 1 9 2 2 357. To Tullio Levi-Civita[1] [Berlin, on or after 15 September 1922][2] Dearest Colleague, It would be a great pleasure if we could have a contribution from you. It seems to me a fine idea to create a publication for all Jews who work in the sciences.[3] Many greetings from your Albert Einstein. 358. To Arnold Sommerfeld [Berlin,] 16 September 1922 Dear Sommerfeld, The last time I was in Leyden[1] I noticed that Ehrenfest was quite unhappy that you had denied him authorship of the adiabatic hypothesis in the last edition of your book.[2] In his last letter to me he informed me of details about this, on the impression that I would be seeing you in Leipzig. You might change your opinion if you read his details in this regard in the enclosed letter so the passage might be altered in the English edition and eventual later ones.[3] It would please me very much, as I found him quite depressed about the matter.[4] Amicable greetings, yours, A. Einstein. 359. From Svante Arrhenius[1] Leipzig, 3 Dittnitzer St. c/o Dr. Leo Jolowitz [before or on 17 September 1922][2] Esteemed Colleague, As I was passing through Berlin yesterday, I heard from Mrs. Margarathe Hamburger[3] that you are in the process of leaving Germany in order to go to Japan. I very much regret that external conditions are so bad that you reached such a decision.[4] It will probably be very desirable that you come to Stockholm in December and if you are in Japan then that will surely be impossible.[5] The invitation to Stock- holm cannot be sent out to you before the middle of November, however. Could you not stay in Europe until then? If you do so, you will presumably also visit Stock- holm soon afterwards, unless some “superior force” prevents you.
