Letter from Sigmund Freud to Sándor Ferenczi, February 3, 1919
Vienna, February 3, 1919
IX., Berggasse 19
I am using the opportunity of Toni's trip home to send you a letter that travels quickly. Little new with us; I rather await great news from you.
Much to do; am also working on the second edition of Leonardo,1 which I have finally lived to see after nine years. The discussions with Rank are claiming much interest; he is working hard, but willingly. Such a Verlag gives much to do. His trip to Switzerland is now imminent, if he can get Jones there and learn more details from Pfister about the plan of the competitor in Bern. Our enterprise will cost us much money, and new opportunities to invest money are opening up daily. We don't know anything about the big fund. Let's hope it hasn't gotten lost; Toni, who is at present angry at analysis, hasn't bothered about it, so it seems.
I wrote a brief obituary about Putnam and promised a detailed acknowledgment with photograph for no. 3. There's no working with Heller; the purchase of paper will make us totally independent of him. As soon as paper is here, your book and the discussions on war neuroses will go to press, but Simmel's manuscript isn't here yet. And so, there are countless similar worries and difficulties. But, as mentioned, both of the boys, Rank and Reik, are working very valiantly. No further news from Martin.
Lively activity from the Society.
I greet you and Frau Gisela cordially. We often talk about you.
