Sigmund Freud

Vienna, April 27, 1929
IX., Berggasse 19

Dear friend,

Wife and daughter went to Berchtesgaden yesterday to look for a place to stay. (You recall perhaps a Herr Gulyas,1 who visited us there.) With our complicated needs, the choice won't be easy for us this year.

Brill (according to Lehrman's communication) is supposed to be coming to the Congress; he is, nonetheless, a reconciling factor. Eitingon now seems to see the situation in a more unfavorable light than immediately after Paris. He wrote me that my suggestion for an amicable separation— with the retention of some commonalities—seems unfeasible to him.2 I fear we will be happy if we only get that much through.

The Paris group is also sticking with us, on account of the Princess. But the danger is that in the event of a vote, the people will take positions as individuals, and not along the lines of their group. The last mask of resistance to analysis, the medical-professional one, is the most dangerous for the future.

I, too, am experiencing a good time physically, and am getting along better with my prosthesis. But production has no prospects at all with me.

Let's hope I can soon give you a beautiful travel destination for your visit in July. We let ourselves be scared away from Switzerland by the sirocco warnings from all sides.

I greet you and your dear wife cordially.

Yours,

Freud
