Dear friend,

I am becoming accustomed to replying promptly, because one can't figure out when a letter will arrive. Your last express letter required a week; today's came on the third day. These are conditions which could spoil one's letter writing.

Your suggestions for awarding the prizes don't quite square with my intentions. I don't want to distinguish authors but rather works, so I can't take both of Abraham's papers but would have to decide on one. The “Artist” is an old work, whereas I have had my eye on the war years of 1914-18. “Homer” is only an introduction, which doesn't come into consideration for this review. When Rank is here again, I hope to hear that you have also discussed the topic of the Budapest Prizes with him.

I am pleased to hear that you have taken up work in full scope. I am naturally not doing so well here. I am working with six, mostly “those on the verge of extinction,” and can get down to three any week. Budapest is decidedly more favorable for ΨA, not that I am thinking of moving on account of that.
