Vienna, September 18, 1931
IX., Berggasse 19
Finally, a sign of life and love from you! After how long! The last time you were in Vienna we hardly saw each other. I was very miserable at the time, to be sure, but today I am significantly better.
There is no doubt that with this interruption of contact you are distancing yourself from me more and more. I say, and hope not: alienating. I accept it as fate— like so many other things; I know that I am not personally to blame for it; in recent times I also preferred no one else to you.
It is with regret that I term it an expression of inner dissatisfaction that you are trying to press forward in all kinds of directions which to me seem to lead to no desirable end. But I have— you, yourself, bear witness to this— always respected your independence and am prepared to wait until you yourself take steps to turn around. With you it could be a new, third puberty, after the completion of which you will probably have reached maturity. But I definitely have to deal with the next, for me, perhaps last, president of the IPA.
With cordial wishes for your October trip and warm thanks to your dear wife.
