    Description

    Albert Einstein Typed Letter Signed "A. Einstein", one page on embossed letterhead, 8.5" x 11", Princeton, New Jersey, November 5, 1953 to Mr. Lester Murphy, Brooklyn, New York. It reads: "Dear Sir: Thank you for sending me your manuscript and the book ba [sic] Lecomte de Nouy. I find the man interesting in what he tells about our knowledge in paleontology and his doubts about the opinion of natural selection has given a satisfactory explanation of the trend toward increasing organization and differentiation in the organic world. But I must confess that his arguments in favor of traditional religion with a planning God appear to me rather childishly antropomorhic [sic]." A precisely penned and legible signature on gently toned paper with smoothed folds. Very fine condition. Excellent content shedding light on Einstein's opinions regarding Darwinism and its detractors.
