TLS in German, signed “A. Einstein,” one page, 8.75 x 11, personal Caputh letterhead, June 1, 1931. Letter to Mr. Kohn, in full (translated): "Unfortunately I could not see you as a result of my trip. My wife told me how unhappy you feel and that you have lost your position on top of that. I confidently inform you that Weizmann, who wants to retire from politics, wishes to become academic director of the university. I believe that this would be good, partly because of Weizmann's abilities, partly because it would be comparatively easy to overcome the opposition to the creation of an academic leader. As far as you are concerned, I believe that you should seek a position as a teacher of political history at an American university. The only difficulty will be to experience the opportunities. I believe that your good recommendations from England and also my recommendation could be quite useful to you. Do you wonder if you have someone to inquire with (Professor Frankfurter Columbia University or Salomon Flexner?). With warm wishes and greetings." In very good condition, with creasing, file holes, corner paper loss, and several short edge tears.
