EINSTEIN, ALBERT (1879-1955, scientist)
AUTOGRAPH UNSIGNED ANSWERS TO QUESTIONS ABOUT HIS HOPES FOR 1929, the questions in the form of a typed letter signed in German by Edgar A. Modrer of the Berlin Bureau of the Chicago Daily News asking Einstein, now that peace has lasted for 10 years and though the war left unsolved many questions and others have been added, as a respected and prominent representative of the German people, what he thinks the best German people would wish for the world in the New Year; Einstein's autograph reply is written in German on the verso of the letter: he wishes that there will be worldwide international agreements with regard to far-reaching disarmament, that a solution will be found for the problem of international war debt, which will permit all European countries to coexist without having to sell off their possessions to other countries and that a genuine modus vivendi will be found with the Soviet Union so that Germany will be free from external pressure and able to develop internally without interruption, 2 pages, quarto, small repair at horizontal and vertical tears, The Chicago Daily News, 18 December 1928


  • It is notable that Einstein makes no reference to the forthcoming financial disasters of 1929.
