Budapest, May 31, 19311

Dear Professor,

Instead of directly communicating what is new with us, I am taking the liberty of sending in a piece of a copy of a letter to Eitingon. With the opening of the polyclinic,2 our training institute is really only now becoming an institution for training. Naturally, with us things are also going in the direction of vanity, not without sensitivity and injury. The older members of the group, even though they don't partcipate much themselves any longer, look askance at the young ones' industriousness. Strangely, Lajos Lévy and Kata are also not very friendly with the younger ones; our secretary3 handed in his resignation, but I hope to appease him.— Isn't it strange that again and again only private protection of a just cause can help [achieve] victory? Every medical forum that was asked was rude and disdainful. The authorities had to accommodate the professors to a certain degree, and thus, it says in the permit: Since psychoanalysis is not an independent science but a part of general psychology and neuropathology, the Association must express this in the title of the polyclinic by having it call itself simply a clinical agency for nervous and emotional illnesses in which, among other things, psychoanalysis is practiced. Thus, the name of the polyclinic will be something like: Clinical Agency of the Hungarian Psychoanalytic Society for Nervous and Emotional Illnesses.

Please thank your Anna in my name for her kind letter.
