1 8 D O C S . 2 0 , 2 1 A P R I L 1 9 1 9 happy, and heartily so, about any recognition you may receive, but my pleasure was quite diminished again by this second paper. With best regards, yours very truly, A. Berliner. 20. From Helene Stöcker[1] Nikolassee, Berlin, 1 Münchow St., 9 April 1919 Dear Professor, We believe we may assume that the demands of the enclosed appeal are also yours and would be exceptionally grateful if you would lend it greater weight by your signature.[2] We then intend to request a group of about three hundred select persons to present this declaration, backed by a number of influential people, to the government. As this situation is extremely urgent, we request your gracious instant reply.[3] We may permit ourselves, if necessary, to inquire of you tomorrow morning by telephone whether you would like to support these demands with your signature. Very respectfully, sig. Dr. Adolf Grabowsky, Max Hochdorf, Prof. Gustav Radbruch, Dr. Walter Koch,Dr. Helene Stöcker.[4] P. S. Please reply to the above-indicated address. Dr. Helene Stöcker. 21. From Georg Count von Arco[1] Tempelhof, Berlin, 49/50 Albrecht Street, 12 April 1919 Esteemed Professor, Although messengers hurried to the lecture hall immediately after the telephone conversation, it was obviously too late already. When Einstein speaks, the hall has for long been sold out to capacity.[2] You were imprudent enough, however, to assure me that you would be prepared to give us a privatissimum. I would like to take you up on this, and ask you to equate “us” with the “G[erman] M[onist] L[eague].”[3] Therefore you will soon be haras- sed in this regard by Dr. Janke.[4] With cordial greetings and thanks in advance, always yours, Arco.
