Dear Professor,

I must honestly admit that, by speaking about my present activity in expressions like “dream-life,”“daydreams,”“puberty crisis,”this does not signifiy in me total insight into illness, and that in reality I have the feeling that out of the relative confusion something useful will develop and has already developed. So, I can't conceive of the presidency as a drastic measure against an illness which I don't actually recognize as such. So, I don't think I am doing useless work if I continue my present manner of working for a time. If you believe that this can be brought into harmony with the expectations which one has for the president of an association, and if, as you assure me, I can count on the active assistance of Anna and the two vice presidents, I will consider it an honor also to stand for once as president of the society on the founding of which I collaborated and in the activity of which I actively participated for a long time.

I consider Eitingon's idea to elect Brill as the third vice president to be excellent.

The list of members that Eduardo Weiss2 presented to us seems to me to be too immature for founding a society in Rome. Colleague Weiss has to work diligently until the next Congress to get a more presentable group. So, I cast a negative vote.
