Dear Professor,

I have just been reading the second sheet of your Ego-book and hasten to say how gratified I was by the solution to the apparent contradiction in the “unconscious consciousness of guilt.” It certainly would never have occurred to me that the “superego” (as a consequence of its ignoble origin from the erotic) can become incapable of consciousness.1 But as soon as I read it, it became completely self-evident to me. Such recognitions amply reward one for the effort that the attentive reading of your work requires.

Now, a small personal-scientific question: Am I justified in qualifying the “ego memory systems,” which I postulate in my paper on tic,2 as a part of your ego? I believe: yes. The ucs. (the latent and the repressed) certainly contains, if I understand you correctly: the remnants of the memory of things.
