Sándor Ferenczi

Internationale Zeitschrift für Arztliche Psychoanalyse

Budapest, January 6, 1921

Dear Professor,

I couldn't imagine a more beautiful way of celebrating your birthday—if not with calendarlike punctuality—than by finding ourselves together in a small common Whitsun trip. We have completely abandoned the plan to offer some “surprises” or other, especially after such tendencies became known “by chance.” I will propagandize for the idea of a Whitsun trip in the next Committee letter; let's hope Jones can also get away at that time. Let's also hope that in the meantime there won't be any passport difficulties for me. As a meeting place one should consider first and foremost Salzburg or Munich, or perhaps a place in the German or Austrian Alps; secondarily, one could also (for a short time!) decide on South Tirol, although the currency conditions should not be left totally out of consideration. If you should allow yourself a somewhat longer vacation for Whitsun, then I would gladly decide to spend this time with you; for that I would lop off something from the summer vacation. Naturally, I would also like to know something about your summer plans. You see: I don't want to give up the illusion that, despite the many changes—war—impoverishment—marital duties—it will still be possible to maintain our old summer meetings or trips.

There is little to report about myself that is new. My still wavering health did not stand up well to the increased demands of the holiday dinner parties.
