Sigmund Freud

Karlsbad, August 9, 1915

Dear friend,

I am reluctantly returning to you this letter, rich in content, in which I recognize the matrix of several important endeavors.

On August 12 we are going from here to Berchtesgaden. Best address:

Königssee, Upper Bavaria

without any other designation, where I will then be able to pick up the letters from the post office, or

Villa Hofreit, Schönau bei Berchtesgaden.

If the future permits, we would still like to have a few weeks of summer and experience the fall of Riga, but not of Górz, in beautiful nature.1

No news from Martin since July 25;2 Ernst went away on July 30, up to now a card from him from Máramaros-Sziget, a station on the way to East Galicia.

Sachs is getting called up on the 15th; Tausk reports being stationed in Rzeszów.3 The announced books from Budapest haven't come.4

The twelve papers are, so to speak, finished. The alkalescence5 of the last week doesn't seem favorable for intellectual work.

Kind regards,

Freud
