Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, August 7, 1928

Dear Professor,

Today I was able to convey the contents of your last letter to Dr. Amsden. As you know, he has been in Vienna in the meantime, where he was lured by a false alarm report about Dr. Mackenzie's1 condition. He shares your view that the situation at the Semmering is untenable, only he considers it advisable (and not dangerous, considering Dr. Burlingham's previous conditions) that the breaking away from the Semmering not be carried out all too quickly. In any event, he plans to go to Vienna again next Saturday to prepare things; he will also go there a second time, if warranted. He has not yet finalized the details of his plan; perhaps he will succeed in getting Dr. Burlingham to America with Mackenzie; apart from that, he is having Dr. Burlingham come to Budapest. But all that is uncertain. In any case, he is planning [to have] an honest talk with Dr. Burlingham and is counting on its having a corresponding effect on him.

The few hours that I was permitted to spend in your circle also had an invigorating effect on my intellectual and moral powers.

I hope, along with you, for the favorable effect of the arts of the Berlin miracle man.

Kind regards,

Ferenczi

Dr. Amsden spoke to me about an American (from Albany), who would like to be analyzed by you, if possible. I encouraged him to ask you directly. If you can't take him, I will take him. But—as mentioned—he prefers you in any case.
