I confirm receipt of your New Year's letter, the most important subject of which I will not go into now, since the entire question of the big fund is not ripe for discussion at the moment. I have no authority regarding the use of the little fund to honor Reik and to be set aside for the two prizes.

The final determination naturally depends on the outcome of the same struggle in Germany.
Naturally, not many people are interested in psychoanalysis at this time.
