Description

A typed letter on personalized blind embossed stationery signed "A. Einstein" in blue ink, dated "5 January 1954." The correspondence, typed in German, is addressed to Dr. Samuel A. Goudsmit, an American physicist; it discusses a female scientist named Marietta in favorable terms before turning to another matter about the character of a mutual acquaintance named J.W. de Haas. This lot contains four documents: the original letter, an exact translation in English, a catalogue of the letter (possibly from a prior sale), and a typed letter from Einstein's Secretary to Goudsmit's secretary requesting the return of Maria Blau's letter.
