Albert Einstein's complete archive

to go on-line...

"It also includes lesser-known papers, including a postcard to his ailing mother, private correspondence with his lovers, and a pile of fanmail Einstein received about his wild hairdo."


  1. I sent you a Christmas card in December. It came back to me a few days ago:(

    Wishing you strength.

  2. oh how sad.

    perhaps it was the wrong address?

    and thank you...


  3. So sorry to hear that you're confined to bed ! One of your posts made me I think of "The Land of Counterpane by R.L. Stevenson.

    "When I was sick and lay a-bed,
    I had two pillows at my head,
    And all my toys beside me lay
    To keep me happy all the day.

    And sometimes for an hour or so
    I watched my leaden soldiers go,
    With different uniforms and drills,
    Among the bed-clothes, through the hills;

    And sometimes sent my ships in fleets
    All up and down among the sheets;
    Or brought my trees and houses out,
    And planted cities all about.

    I was the giant great and still
    That sits upon the pillow-hill,
    And sees before him, dale and plain,
    The pleasant land of counterpane."
