[SEC299a10]1950 C.P., 5, 47-69. (Tr. James Strachey.)
[SEC299a11]The present translation is a slightly revised reprint of that
published in 1950.
[SEC299a12]An unpublished letter of Freud's to Fliess of May 25, 1899, tells
him that on that date this paper was sent in to the editor of the periodical in
which it appeared later in the year. He adds that he was immensely pleased by it
during its production, which he takes as a bad omen for its future fate.
[SEC299a13]The concept of ‘screen memories’ was here introduced by
Freud for the first time. It was no doubt brought into focus by his consideration of
the particular instance which occupies the major part of the paper and which had
been alluded to in a letter to Fliess of January 3, 1899 (Letter 101).
