Dear Professor Freud,

Greetings from the right side of the Atlantic! I hope to meet you in New York on Sept. 4 and go to Worcester to have the pleasure of listening to you. My wife and I would be delighted if you could manage to pay Toronto a visit and stay with us there. I have also asked Jung if he will come so far North, and expect to hear from him soon. He is not here at the Congress.1

There are a number of “Freudianers” here besides myself; Hart of London, Maeder of Zürich,2 Schwarzwald of Lausanne, [Assagliani]3 Assagioli of Florence (who is writing a thesis on psycho-analysis for his doctorate)4 and Szecsi of Genf (formerly of Buda-Pesta). The last two have never met any Freudians and have learnt only from reading and applications. The last named is a very clever young fellow, only 24. He is reading a paper here, entitled “Psychische Compensation”5 on your work. He told me he would like to publish it—at greater length—in the Jahrbuch, but didn't know you or Jung. I offered to write to you about him, so he will now probably write to you about the matter.6

I am looking forward to seeing you.

With warmest regards

Yours Ernest Jones.
