Transmitting to Dr. Löbl in Lisbon affidavits of Rothschild and Friedmann and a letter of recommendation for the American Consul.
TLS: "A. Einstein", 1p, 8¼x6¼. Princeton, New Jersey, no date. In German, fully translated. To Dr. Heinrich Löbl, Lisbon, Portugal. In full: "Enclosed I transmit the desired letter of recommendation for the American Consul as well as the necessary affidavits to you. The actual assistance comes by the intervention of the splendid Dr. Leon Lascoff, to which you should probably send some lines of gratitude." Einstein notes that he has enclosed affidavits from Rothschild and Friedmann with the letter. DR. LASCOFF, a prominent pharmacist, was the recipient of the prestigious Remington Honor Medal in 1937, awarded annually by the American Pharmaceutical Association to recognize distinguished service on behalf of American pharmacy. ROTHSCHILD most probably is Lionel Walter Rothschild, 2nd Baron whom Einstein had met in London in 1921. PROFESSOR A. FRIEDMANN was a Russian astronomer who began to study Einstein's publications from a purely mathematical standpoint and his cosmological constant prior to 1930. Einstein joined with other prominent Jews in trying to relocate those out of Hitler's Germany. Lisbon during WWII was a safe haven for refugees hoping for passage to the Americas. It is highly likely that EINSTEIN, LASCOFF, ROTHSCHILD and FRIEDMANN were trying to save the life of DR. HEINRICH LÖBL by getting him out of Germany to Portugal and possibly with the referenced affidavits to the American consul, into the U.S. Lightly creased, nicked at edges of vertical fold. Overall, fine condition.
