    Albert Einstein Typed Letter Signed. TLS "A. Einstein" in German on his embossed letterhead, one page, 8.5" x 11", Princeton, New Jersey, February 16, 1943. to a Mrs. Helen Lorz. In full, "In my opinion you have a knack for expressing your opinions in good form. I myself have in these psycho-anthropological matters only the powers of judgment of an ordinary layman and don't know anyone to whom you could entrust your ideas without qualms to obtain his opinion. Under these circumstances I consider the publication in a journal to be possible and advisable, particularly if you bring out clearly what is problematical and uncertain about it. With kind regards, A. Einstein." With the usual mail folds and in very fine condition. Accompanied by the original envelope.
