I have been oriented with regard to Frau G.'s present and near future from your letter and from communications from her. I hope that Fräulein Anna will accept my sister's invitation and—since she knows how to content herself—will also feel well there. Please instruct me soon as to the day of her trip, since I want to confirm this with one of my sisters living in Miskolcz1 who are supposed to receive her there.
As regards shipments to Csorba, I can now only refer to an Ilona Berger shipment, which I hope has arrived in better shape than its predecessor.
I am taking the liberty to revive the plan of your stay at the Plattensee with Dr. von Freund. I have just learned from Dr. Lévy that your move to Lomnicz will, in fact, take place, which, in consideration for your Mrs., truly pleases me.
There is more to do in the hospital, also some trouble, among other things, an encounter with a noncommissioned officer. The heat is terrible again. Baths twice a day do no good at all. You can imagine how we long for the Tátra.
I have in my hands again the supposedly corrected translation of “Totem and Taboo.” I have tackled the revision. Hollós's translation of the Interpretation of Dreams is also finished and is supposed to be gradually revised. Otherwise, scientifically, nothing new.
I wish you—although there is now not a little unselfishness in this—continued nice weather, good mood, and a rich mushroom harvest.
Nothing to report on my personal affairs for the time being. Subjectively, I am well; I sleep without aid.
Kind regards to you all and to Frau Grete Ilm.
