Sigmund Freud

Vienna, April 29, 1916
IX., Berggasse 19

Dear friend,

Eitingon has informed us from Karlsbad that he has obtained leave for Leipzig and won't touch Vienna on the way back. I don't know if he is again in Kassa.

My Easter trip was laborious and showed me that Oli is deeply immersed in work and has every prospect of being done with the painful impression. He will come to Vienna at the end of May to settle the divorce formalities. We are as good as cut off from the two others; we don't even know the number of Martin's field post office.

Rank was here with me on the Tuesday after Easter;1 I was very pleased with him, even though he can't do anything for our work now. Heller is making difficulties for us again; it is admirable how he knows how to spoil the thanks for his willingness to oblige with his craziness and twisted ways. The lecture is going very slowly; up to now only three pages made up.

Your ideas from the biological speculations are, as always, very seemly. I maintain that this is your real field, in which you will be without peer. I look forward with suspense to your intentions for treatment. It should have gone all right without it.

Last Wednesday the Society congatulated me with a bouquet of orchids. It passed quickly and smoothly.

Pfister writes that Rockefeller's daughter presented Jung with a gift of 360,000 francs for the construction of a casino, analytic institute, etc.2 So, Swiss ethics have finally made their sought-after contact with American money. I think not without bitterness about the pitiful situation of the members of our Association, our difficulties with the Verlag, etc. Now Jung is supposedly talking about me again with “veneration.” I replied to Pfister that this turnaround finds no resonance with me.

Kind regards,
