Dear Sir

I wondered whether an experience I had recently with a female patient enquiring about psychotherapy would he worth publishing in our Journal. I will transcribe the following communication made to me in a telephone call from the patient.


‘May I ask you - are you fraudulent?’


‘… Do you mean - am 1 Freudian?’


‘Yes - that is what I just said!’

I hope this classic Freudian slip is useful!
