Sigmund Freud

Vienna, May 20, 1926
IX., Berggasse 191

Esteemed colleague!

A substantial sum of money was given to me for my seventieth birthday by the acting head of our International Association as a

“Psychoanalytic Jubilee Fund.”

I have allocated the larger part of it to the International Psychoanalytic Verlag and the smaller to the Vienna outpatient clinic,2 and in so doing I hope to be faithful to the intentions of the donors. I know that, as a Committee member, you have taken special pains to bring this collection into being, and I thank you cordially for doing so.

Sincerely yours,

Freud

Notes to "Letter from Sigmund Freud to Sándor Ferenczi, May 20, 1926"

1 The letter is typewritten; only the signature, “Freud,” is handwritten.

2 On Freud's birthday, eight or ten of his pupils assembled in Freud's drawing room and presented him with a sum of 30,000 marks ($4,200.00) collected from the members of the Association. He gave four-fifths of it to the Verlag and one-fifth to the Vienna Clinic (Jones III, 124). This circular letter also went to Burrow, Laforgue, Oberholzer, and Rickman, among others (all in Library of Congress).
