Internationale Zeitschrift für Ärztliche Psychoanalyse

Partenkirchen, August 29, 1921

Dear Professor,

My sister (Frau Fleissner from Budapest) just wrote to me that she has turned to you with the request that you might help her son, who has taken on the name Ferenczi,1 matriculate in the Medical Faculty of the University of Vienna; at the same time, she asked me, for my part, also to influence you in that regard.—But, unfortunately, I can not do that, since I consider my nephew, who has got it into his head to be a psychoanalyst, unsuited for this profession in every respect, and in addition to that, also unreliable in some respects. Incidentally, I never made any bones about this view of mine. So that we can circumvent any unnecessary upset on the part of my sister, you should perhaps not respond at all regarding the merits of the case, but have it said directly, or through me, that you will not give the requested recommendation for formal reasons.

If the weather is halfway favorable, we will be in Seefeld tomorrow, Tuesday.

Cordially,

Yours,

Ferenczi
