Vienna, May 13, 1924
IX., Berggasse 19
Your Congress report, which is worthy of thanks, coincided well with all the other news that got to me—partly oral, partly written. So, the impression was a good one. Credit for the happy outcome does seem to go to Abraham and the Berliners. A few of the latter have even allowed themselves to be moved by their kindness [gentilezza] to participate in the Rankian confusion of biological consideration with psychological research.
I read both of the Dutch papers; they are really too poor to characterize as an honorary issue for Jelgersma. I didn't understand from your letter whether these two will remain the only ones. To write an essay about Jelgersma I am missing more than the desire, namely, all the material. That would certainly have to take place from Holland.
I conclude from another remark in your letter that Stanley Hall has died. I didn't know anything about it. Here, the right thing would be to write to Rank that he should get ahold of an obituary in New York that can then go into the 4th issue of the Zeitschrift.
I am in possession in manuscript form of a very nice essay by [Helene] Deutsch (Congress lecture), and an interesting and smoothly written one about tooth symbolism by René Spitz.1 Let me know in the next letter what and when it is supposed to go to print, or what else I should do with it.
Regarding the separation of the Congress lectures suggested by Abraham, I think as you do, that we cannot diverge from the decision that has been made by Rank.
