Sigmund Freud

Vienna, November 5, 1930
IX., Berggasse 19

Dear friend,

On October 14, on Pichler's wish, I had a little follow-up operation done on my scar.1 The wound still causes me problems now. The histological examination showed nothing suspicious. On October 17 I suddenly fell ill with a fever, which turned into a little broncho-pneumonia. I was in bed for about ten days, and since then I have resumed my work to a modest extent, but I don't feel very strong and am not very much in agreement with the task of living for my health.

Externally, it seems to be a quiet time. Storfer confirms that since the Goethe Prize there has been a considerable increase in resistance on the part of his customers. Political unrest2 and economic misery certainly have the right to draw people's attention first and foremost to themselves.

I hope you are both well.

Cordially,

Freud

Notes to "Letter from Sigmund Freud to Sándor Ferenczi, November 5, 1930"

1 Two days earlier Freud had written to Eitingon: I also don't know anything more specific about Ferenczi. It is possible that he hasn't heard anything at all about my illness. Despite all our efforts he is going deeper and deeper into isolation. Some date or other has been missed by him (Sigmund Freud Copyrights).

2 The situation was characterized by increasingly sharp clashes between the political factions and their paramilitary organizations. In the forthcoming National Council elections on November 9, the Nazis did not, to be sure, gain a mandate, but they were able to triple their share of the vote. The Christian Socialists lost the relative majority to the Social Democrats, but they formed a governing coalition under Otto Ender.
