Letter from Sándor Ferenczi to Sigmund Freud, August 8, 1927
Semmering, August 8, 1927
I am glad as hell that you contradict me so vehemently. I probably wanted to hear only that, or I am not happy after all that I haven't seen you yet, months after your return from Dollaria.
Incidentally, I confess to a six-page-long essay about fetishism, which is designated for the Zeitschrift 1, 1928. A strange circumstance compels me still to hold back the manuscript. As is well known, Stekel wrote a fat book on the subject;1 I can't get myself to read it, but I must know whether by chance my solution is being touched on by him. So, I wrote to Wittels for information and must await his reply.2 I can imagine that somebody can't go into a room in his house because someone else has done his business on the threshold.
And further, I am also writing an essay on humor, for the Almanac.3 Let's hope it comes together. Of course, everything is more arduous than formerly, in the good times. No wonder I am eternally ill and in torment. The last few weeks were taken up by what I hope was a spastic intestinal disturbance, which is just today beginning to put on a good face. Otherwise, however, this summer is splendidly beautiful, the Semmering radiates in its entire, so charming, magnificence.
The Liebmans will probably not come to you. They have requested [me] by letter to have more patience with the boy, and since they don't seem to be deceiving themselves about the diagnosis, I gave in.
Have you already received the new French Revue?4 If not, ask me for it in a card.
