Einstein encloses a letter from Charles Morris (record 120967) concerning BR's employment at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton.

"There is no doubt that Bertrand Russell is one of the leading minds of our time in mathematical logic and philosophy in general and this writings are—in my opinion—of permanent value." Einstein suggests that "it may be possible to get some special funds to enable this great mind to do his valuable work in Princeton for a few years". "... it must be avoided that later generations should have to tell that this master could not find opportunities to finish his work."
