TLS in German, signed “A. Einstein,” one page, 8.5 x 11, blindstamped Princeton letterhead, February 24, 1939. Letter to Dr. Joseph Cohn in New York, in part (translated): "To my great regret I can not give you a letter intended for use with Mr. Sarnoff. This, according to the former behavior of Mr. Sarnoff, would be unqualified to me and would not contribute to the achievement of your goal. I have a report from Jerusalem that they are seriously thinking about employing Mr. Furth as professor of physics. Of course, in the present circumstances, I did not consider it right to oppose it, but if it turns out that a job for Mr. Furth does not materialize, I think it would be the right thing to do, if you refer to my very high regard to draw the attention of Mr. Bargamann." In fine condition, with some light creasing to the top, and two file holes to the left side. An interesting letter referencing his associates Reinhold Furth and Valentine Bargamann. Furth, who co-authored The Theory of Brownian Movement with Einstein, worked as professor of experimental physics at the University of Prague from 1931 to 1938, then fled to Scotland just prior to World War II. Bargamann was a mathematical physicist who worked as Einstein's assistant at Princeton's Institute for Advanced Study.
