Albert Einstein, TLS, 1950:
EINSTEIN, ALBERT. 1879-1955. Typed letter signed on Einstein’s personal blind-embossed Princeton, New Jersey letterhead, dated April 19, 1950. Einstein is writing as the president of the American Committee for the Hebrew University, the Weizmann Institute of Science, to invite Professor Freudenthal to their first dinner and conference to be held in Princeton on May 10th. Einstein expresses his gladness in marking the 25th anniversary of the Hebrew University, and meeting “…in good fellowship with men and women who share my heartfelt interest in these three institutions of higher learning and who wish to join me in the joint effort to advance the cause of science, technology and mankind’s knowledge in Israel.” 8 1/2″ x 11″. The letter is toned; light creasing and two folds, and what appears to be old coffee splatters.
