An excerpt of a letter from BR to Ushenko, found in Ushenko's book, Albert Einstein: Philosopher-Scientist, page 611.

BR tells Ushenko that it was Whitehead who led him, in 1914, "to abandon Newtonian absolute time and space and also particles of matter, substituting systems of events." The philosophy of events "fitted well with Einstein" and "confirmed me in the views I got from Whitehead, but Einstein was not their source for me, and I think not for Whitehead."
