I am sending you the enclosed letter from Dr. Amsden2 in the hope that you can be of help with your advice in the matter which is provoked by it and which is not unimportant for psychoanalysis. If I were not overtired and overburdened with cases which can't be postponed, I would not hesitate to accept the invitation to Philadelphia myself. I felt much more at home on the only evening that I spent there in the circle of academic notables, as well as during the lecture, than in the hurly-burly of New York. Since I myself do not come into question, I turned to Dr. Radó, to whom I indicated that he come to an agreement with Dr. Eitingon in this matter. His response, evidently in consideration of the journals, turned out negative.3 I think Dr. Nunberg would be the next best person in line. Now, my request extends so far as to have a decision on the part of Nunberg get to me as quickly as possible, perhaps through Anna's mediation, so that I can reply to Amsden, who has since been pressing again by telegram. I am writing this to you, and not to Nunberg directly, since I didn't want to take this step without your assent. I consider our friend Federn to be less of a good teacher and representative. In the event that Nunberg doesn't want to, I will ask Amsden to turn to Eitingon for further suggestions.
Nothing special is happening in and around me, except for the therapeutic and theoretical experiments, which I am continuing with undiminished energy and, for the time being, without halting.
