Sigmund Freud

Bad Gastein, July 18, 1923

Dear friend,

Why didn't I congratulate you on your fiftieth? I don't think it was recompense, but rather, it has to do with my present aversion to life. I have never had a depression before, but this must be one now. I would not have passed up the courtesy toward someone who is more of a stranger.

What you write about sharing the costs of the Encyclopaedia Britannica is, naturally, unacceptable. It was determined that you have to get the work sometime, since you had directly expressed the wish for it, and now you combined the expression of this wish with various admonitions no longer to postpone carrying out the plan.

I would like to urge you not to distract Rank too much;1 he has important things to write this summer, and, when Sachs comes, keep him away from him [Rank], since he will certainly not provide for his own defense.

I wish you and your dear wife the most efficacious recuperation on the beautiful heights of Klobenstein.

Cordially,

Freud
