Dear Professor,

I understand that my letter left you unsatisfied, since I perhaps didn't concern myself in sufficient detail with the problems to be dealt with. But I hope that this feeling will disappear when our correspondence once again gets into its old track. But I am pained by the fact that you have to be annoyed on my account, and even allow doubts about me to emerge in yourself—in the former case, because I would like to spare you unpleasant feelings, but in the latter, especially because this word casts a shadow, as it were, upon the hitherto unclouded relationship between you and me. Naturally, herein only unadorned honesty and openness on the part of both of us can help. I promise you to respond openly to all your questions or reservations.—

Feldmann has, as was to be expected, responded impudently, and does not intend to renounce his right to be called a psychoanalyst. I protested against this again, but did not follow in the personal realm, into which he seemed to entice me, and in my reply, I only said as much as: Feldmann has the nerve to drag the matter into the personal realm; he knows very well what reservations keep me from making my opinion of him public. I couldn't go any further without injuring analytic-medical discretion.
