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. 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. 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. I very much approve of your proposal of coming to Cotenburg 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. 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. 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.
