He can raise an objection to the version of the minutes of the meeting only with the Board of Governors and submit proposals for change to the Board of Governors, which must be voted on at the next meeting. I therefore completely share your opinion. After all, Mr. Ginzberg is not secre- tary of the Board of Governors![7] It is out of the question that we present the minutes of the meeting from the dis- patch to Mr. Magnes. If he continues to behave so badly, then there remains, re- gardless of the money involved, no other solution than to throw him out. You can certainly count on me.

Please bring along for me two separate offprints of the papers you’ve written since the onset of the Bose disease.[1] [2]°. Be so good as to inform us by which route and on which train you are com- ing. By constantly keeping this secret, you are simply depriving our children of the great[2] pleasure of picking you up at the station. The various members of the household are each expecting, with great impa- tience, their own special Einstein—Pawlik,[3] 50% that “Brazilian” Einstein but also the physicist and playmate!— I believe you’ll be particularly pleased with
