Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, September 9, 1916
Grand Hôtel Royal
Nagyszálloda

Dear Professor,

Yesterday, on September 8, I often thought about our beautiful trips in Italy; this day should actually have found us in the Santa Maria del Popolo!

It is natural that traveling and analysis don't get along well with each other; for that reason I will—albeit reluctantly—abandon that plan and think I will arrive in Vienna on the 22nd-23rd of September to continue the treatment.—In the meantime, I will certainly have received from you the news of your return trip to Vienna.

It is probably not worth—in view of the brief time that separates me from the analysis—writing about my condition, etc.

These last few days have not been bereft of external events. Romania's declaration of war and attack1 has struck us close by. If everything doesn't deceive us, the big decisive blow will be struck in the east. An ambitious plan seems to be in store there for Hindenburg.2

Kind regards,

Ferenczi

We spent a pleasant day with Rank.3
