Dear Professor Freud,

I hope by now you have got over the labours of the Congress, and that you feel happy at the success of it.

It was a great pleasure to read your lectures and Jung's in The American Journal of Psychology;1 a Wiederleben [re-living] of old experiences. Your lectures were well translated, though you notice they contain many printer's errors. The only criticism I have heard of them so far is that “an ordinary reader would gather that you advocate free love, removal of all restraints, and a relapse to savagery”!! This from our Professor of Psychiatry.2

My indignant letter to Adolf Meyer about the Psychological Bulletin article brought forth satisfactory responses, copies of which I enclose. After getting two letters and a telegram from Meyer and a letter from Warren I again went over the parts left out of the article, and decided to compromise. I insisted on their putting in parts, about incest and about the shifting of the erogenous zone in women, and let them omit a few [matters]3 points of detail that didn't at all matter. I think you will agree after you have read the letters that it was the only graceful thing I could do.
