[Berlin,] 17 February 1925
Dear Mr. Anschütz,
pleased me very much, particularly for its knightly attitude toward
the H[oly]
I missed you and Kiel very much, and partly still do. But my
course firmly ties me down, and I had to give it because I was explicitly asked to.
Whoever’s crumbs I eat, to him I must sing my song like a proper bird. On the 5th

Berlin, 19 February 1925
Esteemed and dear Mr. Bernstein,

All people of good will are happy to be able to look back with you on this life full
of struggles.
With the expression of warm friendship, your,
A. Einstein.
