Letter from Sándor Ferenczi to Sigmund Freud, July 8, 1917
Budapest, July 8, 1917
Grand Hôtel Royal
I was somewhat afraid about the impression that the Tátra and the conditions there would make on you, and I am happy that you have made friends with it and that the first unpleasant impression made room for a more favorable one. In retrospect I notice what a responsibility I assumed with the recommendation about where to stay. A bad summer certainly has an unfavorable effect on the whole year. Thank heavens things have gone, or seem to be going, without incident.
The Tátra and I are old friends. Certainly I, too, will not be able or be permitted to climb. But some walks are certainly still within our reach.
I thank you for your effort at the Hotel Móry. The “lady doctor” whom you met there is a good acquaintance; she is a relative of Ignotus, who will also, incidentally, come to the Tátra. If you see Frau Garai (that's what the lady dentist is called), please be kind to her. She is an intelligent adherent, also owes something to analysis. I animated her directly to look you up.—
I think you are right in everything you write about Frau G. and our relationship; today I will write to her once again along the same lines. We will be able to talk about this personally in a more comfortable fashion—and quite soon.
On the 23rd I want to visit my old mother in Miskolcz and then continue on on the 24th and reach the Tátra on the same day.
