Albert Einstein envelope signed from Berlin in 1918, a few years after he founded the Theory of Special Relativity. Einstein addresses the envelope to his friend Michele Besso, the only person credited on Einstein's groundbreaking theory; in fact, Einstein wrote in his scientific paper, ''In conclusion I wish to say that in working at the problem here dealt with I have had the loyal assistance of my friend and colleague M. Besso, and that I am indebted to him for several valuable suggestions.'' Einstein writes his name, ''Abs[ender]. A. Einstein'' in the lower left corner of the envelope, along with his address in Berlin. In the sendee portion, he writes Besso's name and address in Zurich. Postmarked from Berlin on 23 June 1918, and with a Zurich postmark from 28 June on verso. Envelope, measuring 6'' x 4.75'', has a World War I streak of paste along the front, done by the censor to determine if any invisible ink is present. Roughly torn along lower right, otherwise near fine, with some writing by Besso on verso.
