Magyarorszagi Pszichoanalitikai EgyesÜLet (Freud-Társaság)

Budapest, January 25, 1922

Dear Professor,

The trip to Vienna seems to have had an extraordinarily refreshing effect on me. Most of the symptoms and symptomlets [Symptömchen], which also gave me no peace in Vienna and prevented me from being able to yield undisturbed to the rare opportunity to see you, have disappeared, at least for now. I am working at full steam, am also capable of work in the evening, now and then I get an idea; the hypochondriacal-melancholic ill humor has made room for a certain jollity. All kinds of juvenile libidinous fits betray a certain manic triumph over the “black gall”1 that has tormented me for so long. For the moment I am unable to decide with certainty whether I should trace this change only to certain hygienic measures which I recently took, or also to the liberating effect of the conversation with you.

It would be nice if I could come to Vienna again in the present, improved edition, and erase the gloomy impression that I must have made on you.
