Sigmund Freud

Vienna, June 13, 1932
X., Berggasse 19

Dear friend,

I am returning to you enclosed those enclosures in your letter that were directed to you. I admired your reply to Brouwer as a model of benevolent diplomacy. I expressed my opposition to Laquer in a reserved manner, which I had a right to do. Suddenly someone remembers that he was always a good friend, which we hadn't noticed.

Your promise to come along if your wife travels to Vienna again made me very happy, for in consequence of the gaps in our correspondence there are a number of things about which I don't know whether I shared them with you or not. It is precisely those things that are fresh that already frequently elude my memory. Such is the case in the matter of changing the editorship in the journals. Federn and Hartmann are the new editors for the International, Kris and Waelder for Imago. The motives were economizing, the advantages of concentration in the Verlag, and Fenichel's siding with Reich's Bolshevism, and other lapses of tact. If your name is omitted in all this, you probably won't take it amiss; Eitingon wishes, to be sure, that his remains. I think a person should be called an editor only if he does the work.

[I report] further that I am again writing on “Extended Introductory Lectures,”which are supposed to make some of the results of the intervening fifteen years generally accessible. There will be eight or ten new lectures; the last, “Weltanschauung,”is finished; I am just now working on the first “Revision of the Theory of Dreams.”It is naturally not going as easily as fifteen years ago, and ruminating is also not the most pleasant business.1

We have been out here in Pötzleinsdorf for four weeks, a wonderfully beautiful time, and if one were healthier, a great pleasure (XVIII Kheven-hüllerstr. 6).

Kind regards,

Freud
