Sigmund Freud

Csorbató, August 16, 1917

Dear friend,

From Rank's card [I gather] you have been informed about the most interesting things of the last few days. I hope my wife has also thanked you for Ilona Berger's shipment.

Anna is very much looking forward to the stay with your sister. I hope she will make herself comfortable there and is not taking along any particular feeling of strangeness. She intends to leave Sunday morning, the 19th of this month, and arrive in Miskolcz at 2:59. Eitingon is lying in wait for her there,1 which will not serve to eliminate [the efforts] of your sister who lives there, but will perhaps mitigate them. I hope she won't experience too many adventures on the trip.

I haven't been apprised of the fact that we are permitted to move to Lomnicz. I will inquire about it. I think there is a possibility of some confusion over the extension of our stay here, which has already been authorized.

Weather yesterday splendidly beautiful; today dreadful. Ferenczi and Präger2 departed at noon in dense fog.

The cigar shortage seems to be at an end. Lévy has notified us of a box, and my brother reports about three that are waiting for me in Vienna. I hope to get by until then, since both Eitingon and Rank have again made contributions.

We would be well, if our mood didn't bear the shadow of the future in it. Ernst is in the hospital in Agram with a diagnosis of ulcer, so on the way to the hinterland with the aid of Dr. Garai.3 But if the present continues in this way, then everything will work out with that (Ernst has, as we know, already gone through a treatment for ulcer at the Cottage Sanatorium; it is what they diagnosed as ulcus duodeni).4

Sachs again sent Imago galleys today. Otherwise, science is still far removed from me.

With kind regards to you and Frau Gisela,
