A few lines yet, before our departure for Paris.
A short time before his death, Glover was stopped by a policeman in a (supposedly) drunken state, because he was jeopardizing public safety with his car. The court sentenced him to pay a fine for “drunkenness.” The affair was there in all the newspapers for people to read.—I can't say what the connection was between this incident and his sudden death—or even if there is a connection.
I just received the news from an American [female] student that Brill succeeded in seeing to it “that the bill before the New York State legislature to prevent non-medical analysis is passed.”1 A lawyer claims that it will take about another two years before this decision is in force.—The publication by your Viereck and an appropriate propaganda are therefore very urgent.
I request the address of your relative in New York—our final address is: Hotel St. Andrew, Broadway and 72nd Street.
Kind regards from us both!2

2 Ferenczi's stay in the United States had a significant influence on the develpment of American psychoanalysis. For most of the time he stayed in New York, where, in addition to the lectures at the New School, he spoke at the following associations: the New York Psychiatric Society, the National Research Council, the Child Study Association of America, the New York Society for Clinical Psychiatry, the Greenwich Psychiatric Round Table Society, Columbia University, and last but not least, the Hungarian Medical Society in New York. Besides that, he gave lectures at the Medical Society in Philadelphia and the Psychoanalytic Association in Washington, D.C. He made contact with all the leading psychiatrists on the East Coast. In addition, he carried on a lively practice eight hours a day. The fact that he conducted training analyses with non-physicians and even encouraged them to organize led to strong tensions with the official representatives of American psychoanalysis.
