Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, June 14, 1923

Dear Professor,

The bad news about your dear little grandson's severe illness1 has deeply saddened us. These are the cases in which one catches oneself still having expected some “providence” or “justice”; one is outraged over the dumb, blind—one would like to say—evil, fate.

I have the news from Lajos Lévy, who seems, by the way, to have given up his trip to Vienna after receiving your letter.

In my affair, in which you are so thoroughly interested, we intend to decide with all necessary caution. These next few days I am still having myself examined by a laryngologist, then (after another X-ray examination) again by the surgeon and Lévy.

This episode disturbed my practice quite severely. In consideration of the possibility of an operation in the second half of June, I had to give notice for June 15 to the patients who are to be let go (among them, Frau D[r.?] Herford,2 who has improved significantly and become smarter). Now that the decision is being postponed, many hours remain empty for me; naturally, I can no longer accept new patients.
