Lou Andreas-Salomé

Göttingen, 7 Nov. 1915

Dear Professor,

May a bullet through the cap and a grazed arm remain the only misfortunes to befall your eldest son, and may your second son, who was just setting off when you wrote to me from Karlsbad, be spared all misfortunes. Though I have not written since sending you my little note of thanks, I have often thought of you and your family—where, as your youngest child put it so splendidly, she alone has ‘to make do for six’.

I am right in thinking, am I not, that the book announced by you will come out before the individual sections have all appeared in the Journal, since this would take a long time in these days? In the last number I read ‘Repression55 only with severe repression of my desire for further instalments! It was, however, precisely this section which preoccupied me and haunted me most. It is a pleasure to see how these things grow ever richer when you take them up afresh; just as on the other hand old works of yours become richer for me, because I am more mature now than I was at the outset, when I understood them only in broad outline.
