Sándor Ferenczi

[to Hanns Sachs]

Budapest, June 23, 1917
Grand Hótel Royal

Dear friend,

Let us hope that the business that I stimulated with my telegram of today1 will come about. Let me know!

As regards the scientific business, I have the following to report:

Dr. Róheim's “Zauberspiegel” is just now being translated. You will receive the first three pages within three weeks—so one issue of Imago has been saved.—The rest will follow very soon.

I enclose two reviews for the Zeitschrift with this letter. The Schultz matter—corrected (toned down)—and a review that I wrote a long time ago and should have expanded on some points a long time ago (of Mach's last book)—but I don't get to anything, so you will have to be satisfied with the old text. You can use the review of Mach for the Zeitschrift, or for Imago, whichever you wish.2—The paper on hysterical stigmata (which I wrote long before the “Pathoneuroses”)3 requires, in consequence of this hysteron-proteron,4 a small supplement along the lines of the “Pathoneuroses.” Please send it to me for my brief use.

I don't know whether I will get to other reviews. For the time being there is no question of original works (on my part). I am busy from 7 o'clock in the morning until 8:30 in the evening.—

I am naturally in agreement with the layout of the “Zeitschrift.” But you shouldn't be so generous with the name “Kardos,” otherwise you will arouse too much curiosity. You could choose the nicest names—and “— does he always have to be from Hungary, of all places?”5

Prof. Freud once wanted to see the Mach critique altered, especially since he didn't want us to curry favor with Mach, who was still living at the time. This consideration is no longer valid with respect to someone deceased.6
