TLS in German, signed “A. Einstein,” one page, 8.25 x 10.25, blind-stamped personal letterhead, June 23, 1939. Letter to Edward Barsky of the Medial Aid Committee of the Spanish Refugee Relief Campaign. In full (translated): "I would like to have my name included on the sponsorship list of your Committee. With the highest esteem." In very good to fine condition, with light creasing, staple holes to the upper left corner, and a trivial tear to the blank area on the left side. Archivally cloth-matted to an overall size of 15 x 17.5. Himself a refugee and a humanitarian, Einstein lent vigorous support to the anti-Franco forces in the Spanish Civil War.
