Letter from Sándor Ferenczi to Sigmund Freud, May 11, 1924
Budapest, May 11, 1924
Rank handed over to me to look through a part of the works which are located in the editorial portfolio. He told me that issue II is already ready for printing, that is to say, is printed, with the exception of the Congress report, which Abraham will send me. In Salzburg I received, further, the (enclosed) papers by two Dutchmen, which van Emden gave me as a contribution to the planned Jelgersma issue. Please read through them and have them moved along (to the printer) by Storfer. As sole contributions to a Jelgersma issue I find them quite shabby. Still, we could publish them simultaneously with the editorial communication of Jelgersma's jubilee. Perhaps we will ask van Emden for a brief Jelgersma biography; or do you want to write it yourself?1
The most important work of the third issue is “The Dissolution of the Oedipus Complex,”2 which, unfortunately, I have still not been able to read.
Federn suggested to Abraham that we would like to publish the Congress papers in a special issue. Abraham would like to pursue this idea. But since (as Rank told me) we will be strongly advised to take up the Congress material in the next volume, I thought it would be better to stay with what we have been doing up to now, and I replied to Abraham to that effect. In any case, I request your decision.
So much for editorial matters.—
There is not much in the way of personal things to report from here. I would be all the happier to receive good news from you soon.
It will interest you to know that our friend Lajos Lévy communicated to me his first psychoanalytic idea that occurred to him, and which I consider very interesting.
