Sándor Ferenczi

Internationale Zeitschrift für Ärztliche Psychoanalyse

Budapest, July 31, 1914
(afternoon)

Dear Professor.

Since the mail probably won't be delivered anymore tomorrow (the news of the general mobilization just arrived),1 I will hasten to give a brief report.

If there is truth to the above news, then tomorrow or the day after I will have to report to the Seventh Militia (Honvéd) Hussar Regiment as a physician for the Home Guard.

The vacation trip is canceled. (Even if I don't report for duty, I will have to stay here as a physician in the polyclinic.)

I will be able to take care of editorial matters only with difficulty from here—in view of the disruption in railway and postal services. I think Rank will soon be home again.2 I have no contact with him at present.

Excitement has reached a peak here (over the news of Russian involvement).

Frau G. has returned from her summer residence—as they all have, incidentally.

The Platonic idea as a transference substrate is precious.3 Jung seems also to have used the word imago in a quite incorporeal way.

Kind regards to all in Karlsbad and Seis.4

Yours,

Ferenczi
