Letter from Sándor Ferenczi to Sigmund Freud, January 22, 1925
Budapest, January 22, 1925
Just received your letter from Emil v. Tószeghy. He refuses categorically to effectuate the authorization of the orphans' agency; [he] requests that the power of attorney granted to me be returned, maintains that striking Toni's share in the partnership can best be effected with the help of a death certificate, the family refuses any compensation. “It is impossible,” he writes further, “that we” (the Freund family) “will be made partners without our consent.” “The general meeting of November i cannot have made a decision about the transfer of the share,” “a general meeting cannot make a decision about that.”
Should a modality for speedy settlement suggested by Dr. Béla Lévy succeed, then he (Emil) will expedite it. A buyout of the heirs, if warranted, is only a formality. The letter is kept very friendly in tone, but he doesn't want to have anything to do with Dr. Rosenfeld, who wrote the unfriendly letter. I want to come to an understanding with Dr. Bela Levy, and ask you to send or to show this letter of mine to Eitingon, which can at the same time substitute for the reply to his last inquiry. I am very sorry not to be able to be with him simultaneously in Vienna.1
How are you and your family? Did you find or write something new recently? What a pity that I am so seldom in a position to talk with you about all kinds of things.
Many kind regards from us all.
