Einstein, Elsa [Albert].

Autograph Letter Signed by Elsa Einstein, Albert's Wife, to One of Einstein's Mistresses, Margarete Lebach.

np nd ((1929-1933) 38 lines of handwritten text on two sides of one plain sheet, 11 x 8.75, several tears and chips at edges with some missing text, folds, toning, with a translation from the German. Elsa offers to meet Lebach -- one of Einstein's mistresses -- in a public spot, such as a pastry shop, rather than on a sailboat or in Einstein's apartment (Albert's idea). Elsa tells Lebach about their trip to America in January after which Albert would be returned to Lebach happy. Interesting personal content especially since Elsa reportedly married Einstein in 1919 after being his mistress since 1912! Poor condition due to edge chips and loss of text, but still an important letter. The letter mentions their house in Caputh, which was built in 1929 or so, and they emigrated to the U.S. in 1933, so this places the date of the letter in this time frame.
