AD. [120 392]. Calculations written on a folded sheet of paper. The first page is written underneath
letterhead “S.S. Kitano Maru”; the second and third pages are on the verso of the sheet; the last page
is written upside down with respect to the first page on the recto. Incorrect page numbers at the bottom
of pages 2, 3, and 4 in an unknown hand have been omitted.
Dated by the fact that it was written on “Kitano Maru” stationery. Einstein was on board the SS
Kitano Maru from 7 October to 17 November 1922 while on his trip from Marseille to Japan.
The calculations on this page bear some similarities to the calculations on [p. 51] at the back of
Einstein’s Travel Diary to Japan, Palestine, and Spain (see Vol. 13, Doc. 418, p. 672).
