V O L U M E 8 , D O C U M E N T S 1 1 3 e , 1 1 3 f 1 5 Vol. 8, 113e. From Pauline Einstein Heilbronn, 7 September 1915 My dear Albert, I was hugely pleased about your postcard I received it yesterday & I hope that you soon give me more news & then have more to tell me. So now you’re surely staying with your friend Zangger [1] I’m so anxious to know whether you saw your children & how. Were they just as happy to see you? Or had their mother already totally poisoned them? You’re surely spending the time quite nicely how did you get on with your var- ious friends? Did you write to Maja right away? & when will you be going to see her?[2] I’m also eager to know how the reunion with Uncle Jacob went.[3] He was letting off quite some steam about you, but that’ll have dissipated long ago, I hope. I still often think about our fine time together it was just a little short![4] I still do talk a lot about it with Guste [5] & Mr. O[ppenheimer] greatly enjoyed having his dear guest [6] he sends his cordial greetings. Guste is leaving tomorrow for a few weeks I don’t like that at all maybe her absence will be shortened by my also going away for a time Mr. O. is going on about Baden-Baden, you know hopefully something will come of it. From Aunt Fanny[7] I received a big letter, but there’s nothing noteworthy in it a postcard from Elsa arrived after you had departed I enclose it. Do write me in detail & my love & kisses from your Mama. Vol. 8, 113f. From Elsa Einstein [Berlin, 7 September 1915] My d[ea]r Albert, Today, a sign of life, at last but again only in the form of a paltry postcard. And you could be telling me so much from there. Throughout your 10-day trip, four scant little postcards: That costs 15 minutes time. You really could have been a little more generous. Or do you think I’d become too “uppity”? In the meantime you saw the boys[1] and I’m dying to hear how the children met you. I really don’t under- stand why you didn’t summon them immediately after you had arrived. Despite everything! I intend to travel to Heilbronn the day after tomorrow.[2] I’m hurrying up now, even though this time is very inconvenient for me to be able to be back here again at the same time as you. I’m looking forward to that like a child. Do please
