Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, August 3, 1924

Dear Professor,

The strange news that you shared with me about Rank's behavior in America and that you characterized as a sign of his psychoneurosis gives me much to think about.1 His peculiar attitude in the matter of my invitation to America was not compatible with dispelling these concerns. Nevertheless, I consider it possible that our fears will show themselves to be erroneous, and that with him it is a matter of exaggerations, which find their explanation in the material and other successes which he is raking in there. So, again, a case in which one is “wrecked by success.”2—Eitingon wrote to me recently and expressed similar concerns, but likewise expresses the hope that the unfavorable impression he made with the American adventure will be eradicated after his return.—I intend to contribute to that with all the power at my disposal.—

My wife and I are going to Engelberg (in Switzerland) on Friday. Address there: Hotel Edelweiss. My brother, who lived there, writes very favorable things about the place.—I am taking an Englishwoman along to mitigate the expense. We will stay there about six weeks, then we want to come back via Germany. [We] hope to see Lou Salomé and Groddeck on the way, and perhaps, if we also travel via Berlin, Abraham as well.—
