Adolph F. Meijer
January 8, 1923. Prof. Jelgersma gave a detailed account of a case which he treated for four years. The patient was a man of about thirty who suffered from various phobias, but nevertheless carried on his business efficiently. During the analytic hour he several times fell into a condition which closely resembled the defirium of schizophrenia but which could be immediately brought to an end by a question or other active measure. These delirious states, which he called 'phantasies', afforded a clear insight into mental tendencies of which he was not conscious.
February 17, 1923. General Meeting.
After the necessary business had been performed accounts of various cases were given.
Dr. van Emden related several questions put by two children on sexual matters, from which it was quite clear what answers they expected.
Dr. Adolph F. Meijer discussed the history of the illness of a patient whom he had treated eight years previously. She suffered from delusions of persecution, the psychological origin of which was obvious; her conduct was always correct, she dressed with care and managed her household well. It proved impossible to remove her delusions.
