Letter from Sigmund Freud to Sándor Ferenczi, July 29, 1926
Semmering, July 29, 1926
Your announcement that you want to visit me for a few days before your trip to America is exactly what I had expected. You are, after all, going away for a long time, and all future is uncertain. You are naturally not surprised to hear that you can't have as much of me as in [my] healthy days. I am, to be sure, working for only two hours a day (3:30 to 5:30), but I also have less and less endurance otherwise, speaking is unpleasant for me, the eternal struggle with the prosthesis makes me tired, and the certainty that things won't get better with it has a disgruntling effect. To the extent that I am still able to, I am happy in the anticipation of being able to discuss with you everthing that is important to us. We will reserve a room for you in the hotel when the time comes. You will certainly still share with us the exact date.
Your patient, Dr. Franklin, was with me today; I was still affected by yesterday's trip to Vienna, and I didn't quite know what to say to her. She is also not a mistress of small talk.
The booklet on lay analysis is already in press. You will still be able to read it here, in proof, or even in the final printed version. I don't have any other work plans.
My family is well here, the weather is very unsatisfactory. It is annoying to freeze at the height of the summer.
With kind regards to you and your dear wife.
