D O C U M E N T S 3 8 2 , 3 8 3 O C T O B E R 1 9 2 6 3 7 3 381. From Heinrich Zangger [Zurich,] 14 October 1926 [Not selected for translation.] 382. To Mileva Einstein-Marić [Berlin,] 15 October 1926 Dear Mileva, I received your letter after a month’s absence. I was, in fact, in Düsseldorf (nat- ural scientist meeting), then in Holland and in Kiel with Anschütz. The pictures of the cacti pleased me very much.[1] It is an impressive collection. Under the pres- sures of business, I haven’t yet been able to get around to taking care of your “Empress.”[2] Biske[3] was not there and hasn’t otherwise even breathed a word. I believe I missed out on a Eurasian spectacle. I will have the search for your brother[4] continued through the Russian envoy[5] here, whom I know quite well. I am enclosing Bleuler’s letter. He talks about the presence of parallel genetic predispositions in the two families and advises against it.[6] Albert[7] said that he wanted to let reason prevail in such a case. Anschütz is still very much interested in him.[8] He very correctly thinks Albert must, in order to have appropriate success in his practical career, acquire both character and refinement. Judging by his elders, there is little prospect of that. I will be satisfied enough if he doesn’t enter into this alarming production of children.— I intend to write to Zürcher right away.[9] I’m already looking forward to Tete’s[10] letter. Anschütz would like to have him in Lautrach[11] again next year. If he does that, I’ll come there, too. Warm regards to all three of you from your Papa 383. To Emil Zürcher [Berlin,] 15 October 1926 Dear Dr. Zürcher, Mileva writes me that you have lost your splendid father.[1] Men like him em- body righteousness, a sense of independence, and political wisdom, in short, the Swiss spirit.
