Moses Naftalin, M.D.

Since replying to Dr. Stern, I have received word from Mr. James Strachey to the effect that he can throw very little light on the matter in question. He indicates that owing to the rush and pressure connected with the publication of Moses and Monotheism, he was able only to read the first half of it in proof. He speculates that the original mistake was made by a Dutch printer (the German edition was published in Holland). Mrs. Jones made or began her translation from the galley proofs of the German edition and the error was corrected in the final printing. It seems to me, therefore, that whether the mistake was the printer's or Freud's can only be determined by examination of the original manuscript.
