Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, February 21, 19261

Dear friends:

The activity of our Society is the only thing I have to report about in my Rundbriefen. The next-to-last session brought the lecture of a Dr. (of Laws) Dukes, who treated the criminologic applicability of psychoanalytic doctrine (in connection with Reik's book).2 In yesterday's session, several members brought casuistic material. A colleague who was analyzed in Berlin by Sachs, then here by me (Dr. Bálint),3 a learned bio- and physiologist, delivered a paper about, among other things, a case of coronary disturbance with extrasystole, in which the absence of the pulse was demonstrably connected with suppressed erotic (clitoral) impulses and was able to be influenced by analysis.4 [The supposition] that many coronary disturbances, and related aggravations, can be interpreted as “conversion hysterical” is gaining more and more probability.

The training commission began its activity by admitting some (medical) petitioners to training analysis.

Kind regards,

Ferenczi

Dear Professor,

There was a delay in sending you the Rundbrief, and so your letter of today with Daly's money shipment preceded it. The latter is forced by his obscure descent (on the mother's side) to outdo his noble father—hence, the tendency to surpass you and me. But it is precisely his ucs.
