4 0 8 D O C U M E N T 4 5 8 T O K U R T B L U M E N F E L D 458. To Kurt Blumenfeld [Einstein 1929r] Dated 20 March 1929 [1] Published 22 March 1929 In: Jüdische Rundschau, 22 March 1929, p. 145. The artistically decorated basket with the splendid products of our beloved land filled me with joy and emotion. It is a symbol of the fact that ardent efforts and hard work have really borne fruit. Let us hope that people, traditions,[2] and things in Eretz Yisrael will be as outstanding and genuine as the contents of this basket. To you, Mr. Blumenfeld, heartfelt thanks for the warm words. I know that my small influence on the venerable cause will be excessively overrated. I have not at all been endowed with the talent to influence people or even to lead them. If some- thing coming from me produces an effect, then it is because of some impersonal insights that have been granted to me in the course of life. With warmest thanks and greetings! Your, [signed A. Einstein]
