Letter from Sigmund Freud to Sándor Ferenczi, May 11, 1929
Vienna, May 11, 1929
IX., Berggasse 19
A passage in your letter of today leaves me to presume that one of my letters did not arrive at your place. So I will repeat the news that we have rented the Schneewinkel estate in Berchtesgaden [from Dr. Gulyas]1 on the road to Königssee, which we want to move into after June 15.
Your little essay in the new “ψA Movement”2 reminded me of the fact that you are the first and, up to now, the only one who can explain why the male wants to perform coitus. Not a small riddle!
You are naturally not permitted to stay away from the Congress. You know that Jones wants to visit me in June, wherever I am. When he does, he will get to hear a few choice words [from me].
How does my flown-away patient Blumenthal taste to you? Just don't let yourself be taken in by him. He feigns intelligence and is a dyed-in-the-wool ass, worse, in every respect, than he at first appears.
With kind regards to you and Frau G.
