Letter from Sándor Ferenczi to Sigmund Freud, January 21, 1932
Dr. S. Ferenczi
Budapest, I. Lisznyai U. 11.
Budapest, January 21, 19321
Dr. Reich's circular2 seems to indicate a dull fermentation in our Socialist youth. For myself, I consider your intervention not only justified but absolutely necessary to establish our political nonpartisanship. I would be very grateful to you or Anna if I could learn something more specific about these events. Don't you consider it necessary that others besides yourself also express themselves in this question? I am quite willing to express my opinion, alone or in concert with the Central Committee in the event you consider it necessary or useful.
Today I wrote to Eitingon and cast my vote in opposition toholding the Congress in the coming spring. The times are not right for it! Instead of that, I suggested the Central Committee should meet in March or April, perhaps in Lugano as a central location. [I] would naturally be willing to come to Vienna instead; naturally, I hope that Fräulein Anna also learns of this intention.
Since our last correspondence, a kind of emotional calm has set in with me, which—I hope—will have a favorable effect on the solution of the scientific-technical problems with which I am occupied.
Nothing significantly new in the family; my wife's foot difficulties are wavering in both directions. She has been feeling better for some days.
The polyclinic is flourishing; we are positively overrun and are striving to master the difficulties that are arising in this manner.
