From the text of the letters representing the answers to the questions of the converse, we can conclude that it was related to the theory of relativity and the experiments – in particular, it mentioned that the experimental results can be explained by electrostatic theories, but the essence of the experiments was not disclosed.
Perhaps the experiment wasn’t even conducted in reality and was mental.
Issues converse typed, answers Einstein’s handwritten. The letter also contains several graphs.
