Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, December 13, 1924

Dear Professor,

Emil v. Tószeghy has replied to me and Dr. Rosenfeld in a dilatory manner. Thereupon I wrote by express mail to Dr. Rosenfeld and requested him (pursuant to the modality proposed by him [ceding the share to Eitingon])1 to call the general meeting for the 20th and to inform me and Eitingon about it immediately by telegram. This communication of mine crossed with Dr. Rosenfeld's letter (which arrived today), in which the latter confirmed the impossibility of the general meeting on November 20.2

You know that I am distrustful of Dr. Rosenfeld. I don't consider it out of the question that he will attempt an interminable postponement. At one time he wrote to me that the guardianship settlement is unnecessary, and then he revoked that. Recently he said that the matter can be settled by ceding the shares; now he writes that it is impossible to hold the general meeting!

What can one do?! First you would have to question Dr. Rosenfeld about the last-mentioned circumstance. Then, if necessary, prepare the entire matter either directly with the notary, or by bringing in the help of another lawyer.

If the matter would only be postponed until January, then the whole postponement would be nonessential. But the guardianship settlement can last six months, i.e., precisely as long as it takes before Rank gets back.

Tószeghy's point of view can be seen in such a way that he would like at any cost to avoid reviving the bequest matter. His interest actually coincides with ours, so that we can perhaps count on his help. Dr. Lajos Lévy and Béla are engaged in working on him.

Dr. Rosenfeld has not yet replied to my express letter.

In a hurry,

Yours,

Ferenczi
