A mixture of fun and work beyond one’s best imagination. Warm regards to Margot and Rudi[5] as well, your Albert I am still delighted that Margot wrote me so much. Mother has already sent me 2 telegrams from H.[6] That’s the kind of man one must have! 42. To Elsa Einstein Neumühlen, Kiel, Heikendorfer Weg 23, 11 August [1925][1] Dear Else!
