Letter from Sándor Ferenczi to Sigmund Freud, January 7, 1925
[Budapest,] January 7, 19251
Most cordial New Year's wishes!
Nothing significant to report from here. I hope you are continuing to do well. Received Rank's Rundbrief.
Budapest, December 16, 1924
To the presidents of the Branch Societies of the I.P.A.
I am pleased to be able to inform you that the psychoanalytic movement in Hungary is continually progressing, despite the material difficulties caused by war and peace, which capture a large part of the public interest. The physicians, [who were] formerly almost unanimously in opposition to our efforts, cannot keep from referring again and again to Freud and psychoanalysis as a source of knowledge. They are gradually becoming accustomed to considering the neuroses also from the psychological side and are soliciting my opinion about it more often than before. So, I am in a position also to provide the remaining colleagues with case material; some of them have their own clientele, independent of me.
In the course of the year, several colleagues of the British group graced us with their visit, but we also had some other foreign guests at our gatherings. The number of members, which had been stagnating to a certain extent in recent years, is in the process of increasing; naturally, only those were accepted who were first analyzed and then practically and theoretically trained, for which the means have been appropriately seen to. The scientific accomplishments of the members are very satisfactory; after some years of theoretical work, their interest is turning to more practical-clinical tasks.
