Dear friend!

I assume that you have not had any part in the excesses of the rumor about my good health. I have been free of pain for only two days, and I slept without narcosis for one night. Still very exhausted and incapable of anything. You are right, the severe intervention seems to have succeeded. Now we will have to see what it will accomplish for me.

I am, to be sure, not writing myself, but I am having Anna write for me. Your question about the passage “Ego and Id,” page 13, downright frightened me. What is written there is the complete opposite of page 12, and in the sentence on page 13, descriptive and dynamic are simply interchanged—I would like to decline your second question as to how you should interpret the sentence that the conscious ego is above all a body ego. The genetic meaning is certainly clear, and I would not like to touch the indefiniteness further.

Your news that you have invited Lou has made us very happy. But perhaps you didn't know that she is tied to Königsberg for months.

Let's leave it for today with this short note. I greet you and Frau Gisela cordially.

Yours,

Freud
