Typed letter signed “A. Einstein”, to Mario Palmieri, Caputh near Potsdam, August 15, 1931. One page, 4to. in German on Einstein’s personal stationery.

Doubts about his approach to The Unified Field Theory. Einstein’s corresondent has described the essence of the theory "breifly and clearly", apart from certain specific points which Einstein declines to specify. "On the other hand it seems to me that your little paper [Schriftchen] could not be comprehensible ot a layman. Yet it may be that in this relation I am not the right judge. I would like to add that the unified field theory has not as yet been brought to a successful conclusion and that I have some doubts that I am on the right path".
