Letter from Sándor Ferenczi to Sigmund Freud, February 8, 1928
Dr. S. Ferenczi
vii., Nagydiofa-Utca 3.
Budapest, February 8, 19281
I am sorry that my last stay in Vienna was disrupted by the presence of the Swiss woman.2 I was thereby deprived of the so rare opportunity of being able to chat with you about all kinds of personal and nonpersonal things, which I so seldom have the opportunity to do. I took it upon myself, in future, not to let myself be deterred from my first impulse to visit you by any other considerations.
There are rumors of a summons of Róheim to Berlin (probably to the training institute). If the emigration to Berlin continues in this manner, I will one day pack my bags and move there myself. What do you think about the reception I will get there?
Next Tuesday I begin the series of public lectures, which haven't been delivered that way since the outbreak of the war.3 I will review the result in the Rundbrief.
Jones wrote to me in a private letter that he requests that I show him, before publication, the text of my planned critique,4 which I incautiously happened to mention. He would consider this, so he says, a great kindness on my part. I only replied that the text is not at all fixed yet, but I find that such censorship is an unjustified request.
We are very much looking forward to your Anna's visit.
