Dear Professor,

Two current factors are pressing me today finally to interrupt my childish sulking and to resume contact with you as if nothing had happened. That does not intend to, nor should it, mean that I am not willing to talk through together, at the next opportunity, the chronically accumulated motives of the exaggerated mode of reaction bet[ween]2 us. But first, I would only like to get into the current motives of my being pressed.— Perhaps you heard from Dr. Lévy that, in the last few weeks, I experienced a relapse in the symptoms of my illness (anemia perniciosa)— but this time less in the worsening of the condition of my blood than in a kind of nervous breakdown, from which I am only slowly recovering. The other, and last, motive was the letter from our friend Ophuijsen about the situation in Berlin, about Eitingon's attitude— which is similar to mine— and the measures which should be taken in such exigency. As little as I value Dr. Ophuijsen's mental acuity in general, I must admit that this time his sense of the reality made a keen impression on me, and in fact my pessimistic impression also extended to the situation in Vienna and, finally, also to that in Budapest.

Short and sweet: I advise you to make use of the time of the not yet immediately dangerously threatening situation and, with a few patients and your daughter Anna, to go to a more secure country, perhaps England. Dr.
