EINSTEIN, Albert (1879-1955). German-born theoretical physicist.
Typewritten Letter Signed ('A. Einstein') to Cyril Clemens, president of the Mark Twain Society, ½-page 4to, 112 Mercer Street, Princeton [blind stamp], 24 April 1943. Rather oddly writing to an indefatigable autograph collector and cousin (third, once removed) of Mark Twain to deny that he had any knowledge of 'Belletristic' literature, particularly that of Henry James.

Einstein had written to Clemens before (in 1939) agreeing to have a street named after himself but declining to attend the dedication.
