D O C U M E N T S 4 4 7 , 4 4 9 M A R C H 1 9 2 3 3 7 9 447. To Pierre Comert Zurich, 21 March 1923 Dear Mr. Comert, I recently gained the conviction that the League of Nations has neither the energy nor the good intention to fulfill its great cause.[1] As a serious pacifist I therefore do not consider it right to be connected with the same in any way. I ask you please to remove my name from the list of members on the committee.[2] In great respect, Albert Einstein. 448. From Paul Winteler 22 March 1923 [Not selected for translation.] 449. To Svante Arrhenius Berlin, 23 March 1923 Esteemed Colleague, Please accept again my sincere thanks for your nice capitalistic solicitude.[1] I very much approve of your proposal of coming to Cotenburg[2] in July instead of to Stockholm in the winter and am very willing to hold the requested lecture. As far as the latter is concerned, I only regret that my new theory about the basic unity of gravitation and electromagnetism cannot be presented in popular form.[3] Per- haps the lecture could be structured into a popular part and a more scientific part. This just as a suggestion I shall naturally guide myself entirely according to your wishes. I shall not be taking my wife along, who has a very long trip behind her, of course, but perhaps my eldest son, who is currently studying.[4] Whatever else we should like to undertake I leave, with your kind permission, to the provident care of the gods. With friendly greetings, I am very sincerely yours.
