Sigmund Freud

[Bad Gastein,] V[illa] Wassing
August 20, 19201

Dear friend, Happy from the bottom of my heart to have a letter from you! One learns modesty. Berlin course is off, supposedly because I didn't want to take part. But I have had enough torment, have utilized the recuperation here to write “Group Psychology.” I am pleased that you are working again (I differentiate between torment and work). I will let you know my itinerary as soon as I know it myself. Looking forward to seeing you and Frau G. in The Hague.2

Yours,

Freud

Notes to "Letter from Sigmund Freud to Sándor Ferenczi, August 20, 1920"

1 Postcard.

2 The Sixth International Psychoanalytic Congress took place from September 8 to 11 in The Hague under Ferenczi's chairmanship. Freud spoke on “Supplements to the Theory of Dreams” (1920f), Ferenczi on “The Further Development of the Active Therapy in Psycho-Analysis” (1921, 234). Ernest Jones, already acting president of the IPA, was elected its new president, and John Flügel was elected general secretary. The International Journal of Psycho-Analysis became the official organ of the English-speaking groups within the Association. See the report of the Congress in Zeitschrift 6 (1920): 376-402, with Ferenczi's detailed introductory paper and the presenters' abstracts of their own papers. After the Congress, Freud and Anna intended to go to England, but Anna did not receive a visa, so they took a trip through Holland with van Emden and van Ophuijsen.
