Sándor Ferenczi

Thursday [February 8, 1917]1
Südbahnhotel Semmering2

Dear Professor,

Now that I have settled in here to a certain extent, I can report to you about myself and the situation here.

First I was put up in an annex, which involved a lot of stair climbing. I have been in the main building since today.

Yesterday, on the recommendation of Prof. Pineles,3 I looked up the house physician of the “cure house,” Dr. K. Kraus, who received me warmly, gave me dietary prescriptions, and reassured me about the prognosis. The cure house is very nice. The prices not so enormous. I told Dr. Kraus about the 100 crowns daily; he described it as a “slander.”

I am supposed to lie out in the open for an hour and a half before and after lunch; that takes up the time from 11 to 3 o'clock. Otherwise, I am in my room. For the moment there is no sign of a desire for work.

The weather here is very nice; yesterday the terrace was heated by the sun. The mountains full of snow. Perhaps I will gradually get myself together here.

The food is good. One gets bread, as in Vienna. No butter.
