In the letter written in his native German, Einstein uses an idiom signalling affection.
在这封用爱因斯坦的母语德语写的信中,他用俚语表达了自己的感情。
"To the scientific researcher, at whose feet I slept and sat for two full days, as a friendly souvenir," the note to Ms Piccini said.
“一份友善的纪念礼物,献给这位科学研究者。我看到你后为之倾倒,已经在这里静候了整整两日。”给皮奇尼女士的该字条上这样写道。
"You know nowadays the 'Me Too' campaign? Probably Einstein would have been in this campaign by leaving such a note to this lady," Gal Wiener, chief executive of Winner's, told the Associated Press news agency.
