Sigmund Freud

Vienna, October 16, 1918
IX., Berggasse 19

Dear friend,

Sachs was with me today. He told me about the changed conception of his illness and the intentions that connected with it, and that he has received the official communication about the sum that the foundation intended for him. I didn't attach the later 5,000 to his going away to Switzerland, since his illness will result in enough expenditures even if he stays here. I thought: so be it.

Perhaps I would only have exercised the beneficence less impulsively if I had been alone. Now that everything has been settled, I can say that. His family is quite well-to-do,1 you see, and they would hardly have begrudged him the means to recovery. Only if this had, in fact, been the case, or had he been hesitant to avail himself of them, then that would have been the moment for intervention on our part.
