Dear Colleague,
I have translated your paper and submitted it to the Zeitschrift für Physik for
It constitutes an important advance and I liked it very much. I think,
however, that your

are not correct. For Wien’s displace-
ment law does not presuppose the wave theory, and Bohr’s correspondence princi-
ple is not used at all. Nevertheless, that does not matter. You were the first to derive
the factor quantum-theoretically, even if not entirely strictly due to the polarization
It is a fine advance.
With friendly greetings, yours,
