Letter to chemist Kazimierz Fajans, in part (translated): "Since I haven't had the pleasure of receiving reprints from your institute for a couple of years, which is probably a result of the fact that I'm no longer on your list, I would like to ask you to do me the favor of putting my name back on to bring the list, because it is very important to me not to lose contact with the Munich Institute."
