I am writing to you today, 1) in order to confirm your letter of the third and your card which arrived today, 2) because I still sent you a folio of the Theory of Sexuality to the hotel, 3) because I have very much time—only one patient—and 4) because I conclude from your actions that you still haven't pulled yourself together, and I am very dissatisfied with that.
Little in the way of news. The Italian from Nocera (Bianchini) already today sent in the translation of the first of the Five Lectures, and I wrote an introduction to it.1 The case history, 116 pages strong, is finished.
