Vienna, January 11, 1928
I just received a letter from Eitingon and one from Jones, in which both write about the meeting of the Committee planned for Easter. You have probably also just received letters about it.
I would be very much in favor of the meeting, for I think it is more than necessary if the Congress2 is to go anywhere near peacefully, but I have no intention of traveling as far as Paris,3 and I hope you don't either. Paris for two days is so far and expensive for the both of us that one can really hardly expect it of us. Rather, I find that Jones could impose more distance upon himself because this time he won't have a long trip to the location of the Congress. Do you think that with [our] forces united, we can draw the Westerners somewhat closer to the East?
I haven't wished you well for the New Year yet, but I am doing it now after the fact, and hope that it is still valid.
Notes to "Letter from Sigmund Freud to Sándor Ferenczi, January 11, 1928"
Ernst Falzeder and Eva Brabant
1 Preprinted letterhead. The letter is typewritten; only the signature, “Anna,” is handwritten.
2 There had been plans for a Congress in Oxford, which was, however, postponed until the following year.
3 Jones writes that he “had arranged a meeting of the Committee in Paris at the end of February. The fatal illness of my daughter prevented me from going, and Ferenczi found the distance too great, so the meeting was confined to Anna Freud and Eitingon” (Jones III, 139). This seems improbable, because Eitingon wrote to Freud on March 1, “I am pleased … that Anna is in Paris” (Sigmund Freud Copyrights). Such a meeting actually did take place a year later.
