Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, April 9, 1924

Dear Professor,

As you have probably already heard from Rank, in the last Rundbrief I took the first, for now still quite cautious step toward reconnecting the collegial relations among the hitherto existing Committee members.1 I naturally don't know how the further steps will take shape, but I hope that the “individual discussions” projected in the letter will not exclude the possibility of a joint conference in Salzburg. I am certain that in the end the main interest, that of psychoanalysis, will win out over everything personal and over differences in particulars.

My wife and I are looking forward to being able to see you soon, and greet you cordially.

Yours,

Ferenczi

Notes to "Letter from Sándor Ferenczi to Sigmund Freud, April 9, 1924"

1 Ferenczi had been of the opinion that the heads of the most significant Societies definitely have to find a platform that makes it possible, now as before, by means of mutual support, to advance the interests of psychoanalysis, which must especially be taken into account, and that everything [should be] done that commands the common interest. It remained for “individual discussions to create a modus vivendi” (Ferenczi's Rundbrief of April 6, 1924, Butler Library). Shortly thereafter, Rank announced the dissolution of the secret Committee: The cessation of the Viennese Rundbrief in the past few weeks has certainly shown clearly enough that we have definitively buried the Committee This is my position, as well as Ferenczi's, which the Professor finally also had to endorse The Professor conceded to me that the most instrumental thing would be to open the planned Salzburg Committee meeting with the statement that the Committee no longer exists (Rank's Rundbrief of April 10, 1924, Sigmund Freud Copyrights).
