Letter from Sándor Ferenczi to Sigmund Freud, July 2, 1927
Semmering, July 2, 1927
Your letter was welcome, it is going to Eitingon today. I hadn't heard anything from you in three weeks and was worrying superfluously. I haven't seen my brother after Paris since June 16, up here. What he has told you about my glowing condition doesn't seem to me to be very justified, unfortunately. I also send kind regards to the Groddecks, but his [Noah's] Ark fantasies1 are becoming less and less palatable to me. (Between us.) Rank is developing his talent as a confidence man. Will he have overcome his conflicts thereby? Very possibly. His wife could bring about a breakdown, but she has now become subservient to him and accepts his bribes.
[I am] very much in agreement with your intentions to spend two weeks each on the Semmering and in Vienna. In September I also have several work hours, to be sure, but there will be enough time left for us, and I wouldn't be able to endure constant company.
The main thing now seems to me to be that you recuperate thoroughly from the toils of your adventure. I would hope that your program for July and August doesn't disturb you in this. I find it very good that you are participating extensively in Prof. Seligman's work. From my point of view it would be meaningless for me to make a promise or take on a responsibility, but I hope to discuss everything with you.
Now, kind regards to you and Frau G., and warm wishes that you might like Europe again!
N.B. The prospectus will soon be returned.
