Letter from Sándor Ferenczi to Sigmund Freud, January 14, 1926
Budapest, January 14, 1926
I still owe you an accounting of your $200. I paid $13 for the wreath; so there remain $187, which I would gladly send to you if I only knew the bank where you have your account. Please send me this address.
I would like to find out about the result of your discussions with Eitingon;1 if you have no time or mood for that, perhaps Fräulein Anna will be so kind as to share some things with me.—I have had no direct news from Berlin since my departure, although everything has concentrated there for the time being. It is very reassuring to me to know that the direction of the various organizations remains in Eitingon's hands.
Anticipating the Rundbrief, I will share with you the fact that Dr. Reich was our guest last Saturday and gave a well-composed lecture, the contents of which interested us.2 Such guest lectures stand the test very well, and enliven the scientific enterprise, which otherwise gets monotonous.— Fräulein Anna is expected as the next guest (in the spring).3
Do you hear anything from the Abraham family? I received only a few heartfelt lines of thanks from the widow.
You should in the meantime have found out through Eitingon about the film presentation, to which we (to our displeasure) were witnesses.4 I fear that the Societies will have to protest against the manner of presentation of ψα. therapy; what is particularly annoying is that, despite firm promises, Abraham's rank as president of the IPA, and Sachs's as “training analyst of the Berlin Polyclinic,” is being loudly publicized. Sachs is hiding more and more in the cloak of Abraham, who can't defend himself. I am often reminded of your opinion that Sachs actually doesn't belong on the Committee.
