Sigmund Freud

Vienna, November 17, 1924
IX., Berggasse 19

Dear friend,

Radó has been here since yesterday, to take over the editorship. He is reliable and eager for work. Rank, from whom we were unable to find out when he is again returning to New York, writes me today that he already has to depart on Friday (!), and wants to take his leave personally.

Enclosed a letter from Brill, who is finally shedding light on Rank's activity in America.1 I ask you, after you have read it, to send it without delay to Eitingon or Abraham. Eitingon doesn't read English.

Abraham wants to reactivate the Rundbriefe between Berlin-Budapest-London, and says that the main gain will be the renewal of contact with you.2

Collection volume I3 has arrived, as well as the Groddeckian translation of Everyday Life.



Notes to "Letter from Sigmund Freud to Sándor Ferenczi, November 17, 1924"

1 The letter, as Freud wrote to Eitingon, had to do with a meeting of the American Association: One after another of those people [whom Rank had analyzed] stood up and talked, as a result of the stimulation he had received; one [said] that one didn't need to interpret dreams anymore, the other, that one was rid of sexuality altogether, a third, how nice it is that one only has to interrupt the patient and steer him toward the birth trauma (November 19, 1924, Sigmund Freud Copyrights). Freud replied to Brill on the same day (Library of Congress).

2 We have lost one of our best members, but he is, after all, only one. During that same time we were threatened by another loss [Ferenczi] from which we were fortunately spared I will shortly take steps to restore the exchange of Rundbriefe I think the most important result of the altercation in Vienna will be that the harmony with Ferenczi will be restored (Abraham to Freud, November 12, 1924, Freud/Abraham, p. 374). The last two sentences of the quoted passage (Library of Congress) are missing from the published version [Trans.].

3 The first volume of Freud's Collected Papers, published by Hogarth Press. See Jones to Freud, November 7, 1924, Freud/Jones, p. 560.
