Sigmund Freud

T[átra].
Lomnicz, September 17, 1918

Dear friend,

You might already be assured that I was not at all dissatisfied with the change of location for the Congress. The little bit of disappointment that you sensed has to do with the cancellation of the trip to Schwerin, which has become impossible for other reasons.

My only reservation was that we will have to do without the Germans, and then poor Abraham wouldn't even have the direction of the Congress from his presidency. But Freund reassured me about that; according to his information, visits from outside the borders of the Empire will likely be facilitated.

The hints that you want to develop the Congress in a ceremonial-official direction have less of my sympathy. In any event, I won't contribute anything to that and will remain thoroughly “passive” in all speeches, receptions, etc. I also ask that you exert an influence on Dr. Freund such that he reins in his inclinations toward generous hospitality. With that he would achieve precisely the effect among the participants with regard to his person that he wants with good reason to avoid.

I still want to be able to append to this letter when we will arrive in Budapest and how long we will stay. Your peaches were good enough to inspire enthusiasm, and deserve extra special thanks.

Kind regards to you and to Frau Gisela.

Yours,

Freud

Postscript. Still don't know when we can come to Budapest. If we don't get a sleeping car, we will leave on Friday morning, the 20th.
