Einstein Turns Down All Invitations on U.S. Visit

Download PDF for this date

Albert Einstein today asked the Jewish Telegraphic Agency to express thanks on his behalf for all the friendly invitation that have come to him from friends in the United States in connection with his impending visit there and to communicate his regrets at the impossibility of accepting any of them. Dr. Einstein has received numerous offers of hospitality from all parts of the United States as well as more than a score of invitations to address banquets, receptions and other public affairs.

Dr. Einstein expects to arrive in New York on the S. S. Belgenland, December 9th. He will remain in his cabin for three days or else stay incognito at some quiet hotel because he requires complete rest and peace not only for reasons of health but because of his work. Afterwards he will continue his trip to California by steamer.
