Dear Professor Freud,

My last letter, sent a week after the previous one, really answered in part your latest one,1 for it stated what I had decided to do. Since then my plans are not much changed. I am told I shall probably get my professorship next month, so shall stay here through next winter to lecture. After that I may get an appointment in the States or go back to London. The hint you gave me about the unconscious seizing on wandering habits was very useful. Still I think it will be compensated by another complex—the wish to succeed in London.

As to your general advice to stay here, I hardly know what to say to you. I am immensely grateful for the concern you show in my affairs, and for the advice. I don't think I need to say that there is no one whose opinion I respect so much, or whose advice I would more gladly follow than yours. But the whole matter is so enormously complicated—in ways I cannot describe in a letter—that I feel it is not fair to expect you to judge. Perhaps I may have the opportunity of having a talk with you when I am over in
