"My dear Mrs. Stampe!

Whatever happens, you have people here in berlin who stick with you! you are not abandoned! now do not lose your courage and do not let it get you down. Therefore i ask you, think that there are people who are not happy in this world. and if you have grasped these harsh words in their full scope, then you also manage to continue to live without too much strife. you have been wronged, boundless injustice done.


i greet you in my name, Elsa Einstein"
