Our travel program seems to be established. We are leaving from here for Vienna around August 22 and should arrive at the Semmering on the same day or a day later. Since I will be taking leave of you for such a long time, I would like to take this opportunity to spend some time near you, and—if you have a desire—to chat with you—to talk through personal and scientific things. So, we will probably stay at the Semmering for about a week, but we want on no account to disrupt your normal time schedule and lifestyle, especially not with meals with you. We would be very grateful to you if Fräulein Anna would be so kind as to reserve for us a good room with convenient bath facilities in the Südbahnhotel or somewhere else in your vicinity. August 22 can be given as the date of our arrival; in case of a change, we will send a telegram to the hotel. I am very much looking forward to being together.

P.S. I couldn't very well talk Dr. Franklin out of visiting you. She is a somewhat peculiar person with very much knowledge and sharp logic. The analysis was able to ameliorate some of her character traits. She carried out three analyses under my direction. She is the niece of the former Viceroy of Palestine (Herbert Samuel)1 and the late English minister, Montagu.2 Her father [is] a rich banker in London. She was in analysis for two and a half years. Naturally, you are not supposed to have learned all these data from me, that is to say, don't mention them in the event that she doesn't tell you about them herself.—
