Letter from Sándor Ferenczi to Sigmund Freud, March 23, 1916
[Budapest,] March 23, 1916
My request for permission to go on leave just went out today. It should take another ten to twelve days before I can go to Berlin. I am planning to stay there only as long as is absolutely necessary; perhaps only two to three days, since I consider it improbable that Prof. Killian will recommend an operation. I am planning to spend the remainder of the time in Vienna and hope that you will be able to reserve one, or, if possible, two hours for me. I will keep you constantly informed as to where I am staying. For the second number of the Zeitschrift I am sending to Sachs two shorter papers and two dream interpretations.1 I wanted to spare you having to read the manuscript.
A change of command has taken place in our hospital. The commandant (Staff Physician Dr. Feistmantel) was sent to Syria as medical adviser. Among the physicians accompanying him are Dr. Urbantschitsch and Dr. Wittels from Vienna. I would perhaps have gone along if I had a liking for the person of the boss, which is not the case.
Every evening 1/4 of a gram of Medinal2 gives me a night's rest, so that I am capable of work all day and can hardly be called sick. Of course I have to assist my nasal breathing by artificial enlargement of the nostrils.—
A neurologist from Hamburg3 just wrote to me that he wants to be examined and, if necessary, analyzed by me. I am planning to have him come to Berlin.
The four hours are full, and I could fill up another four. I am analyzing a young and very talented ethnologist, who will perhaps be a gain for psychoanalysis.4
I send kind regards and await a reply as soon as possible.
