Letter from Ernest Jones to Sigmund Freud, June 28, 1920
28 June 1920
111 Harley Street, London
I had been missing a letter from you, and only to-day arrived one dated and post-marked Wien, May 24., simultaneously with one from Rank of the same date!
I judge Forsyth more severely than Tannenbaum, for one might have expected a higher standard from one of his upbringing than from an ignorant American. Both deserted us for the same motive of personal jealousy, but T.[annenbaum] at least came out into the open, instead of slipping about like an eel.
My wife, I am glad to say, made an excellent recovery, and is very well. I had inquired first of all about the risk from her obstetrician and the rhinologist, who have had much experience.
There has been no news here of late beyond steady hard work. Hiller has been away ill with influenza for some three weeks, but will soon return. A friend of mine, on a visit here from New York, gave me a very bad account of Bernays, that he is an American “sharper” and quite unscrupulous. That was no surprise to me, after the way in which he had deceived Brill and yourself, so we must watch him carefully.
Pierce Clark has sent an article for the Journal.1 Still no word from Brill. A friend of his, Mrs. MacCormick, sister-in-law of the Zurich one of the same name,2 came to see me recently. She is on our side, will probably come to the Congress, and may very well help us at some time.
I wonder if there is any hope of your spending a week or so in England after the Congress. It would give us great pleasure, and I think you would find it a pleasant rest, especially in the country.
yours always affectionately
