Dear Mr. Sammer:

Here is the corrected text. For your convenience I am listing the page numbers on which I have made changes, with comments where appropriate.

3, 4, 5
7 and 8 I am surprised at the removal of the ellipsis from the quotation on page 8. It seems to me that there were a few words here that I left out when I first used this. I am still not very mobile, and it is rather inconvenient to get to a library to check this (too many stairs), so I would appreciate it if you would do so. I do not like to misquote anyone, even in a small way. At the same time, if convenient, you might recheck Einstein’s (or his translator’s) spelling. I was under the impression that he put an “e” in “experimenter” (the usual practice)

13, 14, 16

17 The term “collaborator” implies a joint effort in the past. Perhaps unfortunately, I had no collaborators. The word “associates” is present-oriented, and is more appropriate.


22 The designation “Reciprocal System” cannot be used here without some explanation. I think it will be better to avoid it.

23 Something was left out here when the material was typed for Reciprocity. I have not been able to locate the original, but I have filled in the gap.


28 The last paragraph was appropriate as an ending for the speech, but it does not fit as well in print. I think we should omit it.

You seem to have all of the data on the quotations except Feynman 7 and 8. These are from the edition put out by the MIT Press (1967). Number 7 is from page 168 and Number 8 from page 129.

Publication in this magazine should be very helpful, and I want you to know that I appreciate your efforts in making this possible.

Sincerely yours,
