Fantastic typed letter signed “A. Einstein”.1p., 8.5 x 11.0 inch, Princeton, 1949 March 28. On his blind embossed “A.Einstein 112, Mercer Street, Princeton, New Jersey stationery”, “erh.(received) 30/3” in pencil at the top, signed in dark black ink. Addressed toMr. L. Manners in New York. In German, in full: “Sehr geehrter Herr Manners,Ihr Brief war wirklich erquickend. Man fühlt die freundliche Gesinnung und freutsich. Was nun die von Ihnen mit so viel Recht gepriesenen Pralinen anbelangt,so ist der Vergleich mit der Grenzgeschwindigkeit wohl berechtigt. Ich habe eskonstatiert indem ich unter Missachtung strengster medizinischer Vorschrifteines aus der Menge probierte. Es ist gut, wenn man etwas produzieren kann, dasdauernd des allgemeinen Interesses gewiss ist; mit dem Gehirn allein lässt sichdas nicht zuwege bringen“. Translated: „Dear Mr. Manners, Your letter was really refreshing. One feels thefriendly attitude and is happy about it. As far as the chocolates you sorightly praised, the comparison with the limit speed is probably justified. Ifound it out by trying one of the crowd, disregarding the strictest medical regulations.It's good when you can produce something that is always of general interest;that cannot be achieved with the brain alone.” Accompanied by the originalmailing envelope. Mailing folds, else fine condition. Beautiful and humorousletter from the great scientist!
