Einstein vs. Physical Review

Here’s what Einstein answered to Physical Review when they came back with comments from referees:

Dear Sir,

We (Mr. Rosen and I) had sent you our manuscript for publication and had not authorized you to show it to specialists before it is printed. I see no reason to address the – in any case erroneous – comments of your anonymous expert. On the basis of this incident I prefer to publish the paper elsewhere.


P.S. Mr. Rosen, who has left for the Soviet Union, has authorized me to represent him in this matter.

(I got to this through Geomblog who cites a Cosmic Variance’s post.)
