Do you know that Vero has had a little son?[6] Warm wishes and write back soon with news, your Albert I will see Solovine in Paris. He is translating my Princeton lectures into French.[7] Vol. 13, 161. To Maja Winteler-Einstein[1] [Berlin,] 23 April 1922 Dear Maya, It has to be said that you all have really endured a lot recently.[2] Don’t spare any- thing to heal yourself boils are the hardest thing to get rid of. But when the two of you are well again, you should set about changing your place of residence if you can’t find any genuine vocation in Italy, because it is too expensive to live in Italy on a private income.[3] One has to arrange things so that one is not thrown out of the saddle by the first real mishap. Southern Germany would probably be the right place, especially because Pauli would not be so far from Zurich. Otherwise there is the danger that people there might try to force him out of his position, as they al- ready tried to do once before.[4] I had a very fine but also very strenuous time in Paris, so that I am now a little exhausted.[5] And this week I also have to go to Holland [6] that can’t be changed. In the summer, my boys are coming again.[7] In October I’m traveling with Elsa to Japan and China to preach there, too, and then on the way back probably to Spain[8] as well. But then, when all this is over, I will remain sitting here to the happy end and never give in to the temptation to leave again. I liked the people in Paris very much. But it’s sad to see how Europe is slowly but surely sinking into misery through the rigid attitude of people who cannot bring themselves to rise to greater political viewpoints. I spent some splendid hours with Solovine.[9] He has remained very young and fresh, and just as eager to learn and intellectually active as before. He is well ac- quainted with many of the Paris professors, and has a lovely social life. He is also doing fairly well financially, though still poorly enough that he is in no danger of marrying, for which he is certainly not suited. Stay healthy, warm wishes from your Albert
