Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, June 15, 19241

Dear Professor,

The American trip has become somewhat more doubtful (so I believe), because of the new immigration regulations, even though I still have received no news from Rank about it. The plan's falling through would not be a matter of indifference to me, since I almost sacrificed my summer plans for his sake, and am continuing the work with five patients, who must be terminated, over the summer.

Urbantschitsch is finishing his course of instruction (which was actually a regular analysis of a neurosis) at the end of this month. He has changed much to his advantage, has become more serious, learns diligently, and is, in the process, not untalented analytically. Naturally, he is not completely freed of the tendency toward fanciful innovations, exaggerations, mania for advertising, etc.—so that Fräulein Anna and Bernfeld have to pay attention to his activity, at least for a time. Naturally, he should not know anything about the fact that I have given reports about him; it would be best also to keep silent about this in front of Bernfeld.

Enclosed I am sending you a little paper by Dr. Lévy.2 It is not uninteresting. Please pass it on to Storfer after you have taken a look at it.

With regard to Abraham's suggestion (choice of type),3 I am of the opinion that we should not make any decision in principle until Rank's return, that is to say, wait for what he says from America.

I am concluding the work year with not unfavorable (therapeutic) success, and I hope to have time in the summer to write a theoretical and a practical work.

The American plan also brings along with it the disadvantage that I will spend the summer vacation in the vicinity of the city and am giving up the planned Swiss trip.

Kind
