Budapest, May 25, 1924
This time I would like to lay claim to your time in a few more personal matters. First of all, I would like to be informed about your vacation plans and would like to inform you about my own at the same time. Your plans interest me because I—if appropriate, on traveling through on the way to my summer place of residence, but, if appropriate, even sooner, perhaps at Whitsun—would like to chat with you for a few hours, in order to talk through all current matters, and to make possible once again a scientifically and personally significant exchange of thoughts, which eludes me so in my isolation.
I wrote to Frau Oberholzer and asked her to look for an appropriate place for us to stay in Switzerland. I am thinking this time of being away for two and a half months (from the beginning of July to the middle of September), to be sure, I am taking along two pupils (foreigners), so that the vacation won't be a complete one.
The other matter that I want to communicate with you about is an idea that Dr. Bernfeld already talked about in Salzburg. He shared with me candidly the dissatisfaction of the Viennese group with Hitschmann as head of the outpatient department, and offered (in the event that I declare myself prepared to take over the medical direction of the Vienna polyclinic) to carry this through with you and with the Society. As a motive for the plan he indicated the hope that, under my direction, especially the scientific level of the polyclinic would rise, as well as the at the moment completely lacking inspiration to higher achievement of the younger workers.
