A report on the nonmathematical parts of the correspondence between Euler and Johann Bernoulli. These parts had been covered over, probably by Johann II Bernoulli for the intended publication of the mathematical parts by Cramer, but they were recently recovered from copies in the archives of the Petersburg academy. They concentrate on the known preoccupation of Johann I with money; the most important conclusion of the author is that Euler, who became famous and wealthy abroad, never was in the least homesick.
