Sigmund Freud

Tegel, July 5, 1930

Dear friend,

Received your call for help.1 All sympathy, but it is purely a business problem. If Storfer had money or considered the Hungarian editions to be a secure business, he would have published the books a long time ago. If you think you can arrange more without the Verlag, he will certainly be prepared to give you back the rights that were acquired. It has to be decided between you and Storfer.

I am making use of this occasion to ask something of you in a different, certainly no less important, matter. You know that Eitingon dosen't want to keep the presidency beyond the next Congress. You also know that we all knew that it is due you, and that we postponed your election only for diplomatic reasons. The danger existed that the IPA would disintegrate over the question of lay analysis; it was to be feared that your justifiably inflexible position, meeting head-on with Jones's enmity, which was especially dedicated to you, would make this undesired outcome unavoidable. Eitingon placed himself at [our] disposal, in the person of a cooler and more disinterested mediator. Now the danger has been exorcised, so it seems, at least. Eitingon is resigning, and you should step forward as a matter of course. Eitingon says he already asked you whether you are prepared to accept, but you haven't replied yet. If you turn it down because the old wish has fermented in the interim, only Jones is left as the new president. And you know, I hope, without my issuing any further declarations, to which side my preference inclines.
