IX., Berggasse 19

Dear friend,

I thank you for your kind efforts on behalf of the stay in the Tatra, the results of which I shall await, although I am not confident that I will be able to avail myself of them. Besides, Gastein is coming into consideration, because it has shown an indisputably favorable influence on my ailments of old age (hypertrophy of the prostate and rheumatism). But in Gastein the difficulties in arranging board haven't been taken care of yet. We three persons also won't be overjoyed with two rooms, and all high-altitude locations are unsuitable for Annerl. In other words: the problem is actually insoluble, and I will be very sorry if your efforts will have been in vain.

We will naturally accept with open arms the paper by Róheim which has been offered, and hope that it will fill the next issue (2), which is close upon us. Heller has—as an exception, so he says—agreed to its publication as a special printing. The Hungarian edition must not appear earlier than the publication in Imago.

Nothing can be done now with the Schriften zur Angewandten Seelenkunde, since Deuticke explained at the last opportunity that he won't continue them before the peace. I don't want to approach him again now; his mood certainly won't have been improved by the Lectures.1

Today I finally received still incomplete clean proofs of the latter.

There was already news from Ernst (May 14) from the battle. Everything all right, but very much in need of sleep.

Kind regards,


Notes to "Letter from Sigmund Freud to Sándor Ferenczi, May 18, 1917"

1 The Lectures—which sold very well—had been published by Heller.
