Dear friend,

Cheers to the New Year! May everything that is hopeful for you remain good, and all that is adverse disintegrate. Since this world has room for all possibilities, good wishes can also be realized for once.

I returned this morning with my wife from Berlin, where I had gone on December 25.1 Was up to everything, but fitted with bad prostheses. The, let us hope, better, new one had not been finished.

Naturally, I kept my distance from all professional matters; I saw only Eitingon, who almost counts as family, and Simmel obligated me for a consultation, on the day of the departure, no less. As a deterrent, I demanded 1,000 marks; it was agreed to, but not paid. Now, had I been “stood up,” and the eagerness came from that? I also saw Frau Abraham, hardly recognized her, her fate has changed her so.

Otherwise, I devoted my time to my big and small children, four of each kind, and had nothing but pleasant impressions of them. Both couples are doing well, and the children, the three archangels and little Evchen, are charming, by all accounts.2

Yes, I also chatted away two hours with Einstein; he came to Ernst's with his wife in order to see me. He is cheerful, confident, and kind, understands as much about psychology as I do about physics, and so we had a very good conversation.

Eitingon already showed me your Rundbrief; I will send in to him the addendum that I found here. I find the group's behavior toward you revolting. I find all your news very interesting.

René Spitz assures me in a picture postcard from Victoria Nyanza that psychoanalysis is now also being debated about in central Africa. You probably know that Frau Kempf3 has requested analysis with me, but only for three months. I wrote and told her no. But she cabled that she will come on March 1.
