Autograph letter signed, in German, to his maternal uncle, Caesar Koch
1941. "You Have Always Been the one Dearest to Me in the Entire Family"Einstein, Albert (1879-1955). Autograph letter signed, in German, to his maternal uncle, Caesar Koch (d. 1941). 1 page. N.p., n.d. [Princeton, 1941?]. 278 x 211 mm. Evidence of folding, 2 faint rust spots, but very good."It is always a great joy to us when we hear from you and about you. You have always been the one dearest to me in the entire family. I am not surprised that you are still able to maintain in such times your inner equilibrium and that you remain such a pillar of moral strength for your family. Recently, when [Caesar's daughter and Einstein's cousin] Alice visited us, we thought of you with special warmth, and I only wish that we could meet one more time in this strange world [translation]."Einstein's wish was not granted, as Koch died a few months after receiving this letter. The form of the signature used in the letter--"deinem Albert" (your Albert)--is quite unusual, but it is the same as the one Einstein used in his youthful 1895 letter to Koch.
