Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, April 29, 1919

Dear Professor,

In a letter entrusted to the mails I informed you about my personal affairs, about changes that are taking place in the Ψα movement, etc.—

Today, however, in possession of your letter sent by way of Sándor Szabó, I am in a position to get a few lines to you by way of a personal conveyor; so I will repeat what has already been written.

1)   Ad T[oni]. His condition is on the whole unchanged. For a few days he was under the aftereffects of the X ray radiation, i.e., depressed and inclined to nausea. That has, in part, abated. He complains of paresthesias in the stomach.

His emotional state is actually composed, [there is] now little noticeable in the way of neurosis; psychosis didn't manifest itself at all this time.—I am striving to cheer him up and to keep him busy, and I visit him every day. I am naturally very worried about him, and it takes effort on my part to show that I am calm and in a good mood. We have become much closer to each other lately—it is all the more painful to know that he is suffering so.

2)   Ad 2.) Personal matters.

Physical well-being as a symptomatic reflection of progressive consolidation in every other respect. I will only be able to report on that personally.

3)   Ad 3.) Psychoanalysis.

My appointment to full professor “for psychoanalysis” has come through. First and foremost responsible for that is Radó, who whipped the matter through the education section.

Ça va bien—said the man from the height of the second floor!

The danger of having too many friends is not threatening us at present. There will also be fights intra muros.1 Pourvu que ça dure.2
