C. G. Jung
Burghölzli-Zürich, 26 February 1907
Dear Professor Freud,
It is indeed a great pity that it is impossible for me to come at Easter, and I much regret arriving at a time that doesn't suit you. Unfortunately it can't be managed otherwise. I shall be in Vienna next Saturday evening and hope I may call upon you on Sunday morning at 10 o'clock. I am travelling with my wife and one of my pupils, a nephew of Binswanger in Jena.1 Perhaps I may, if occasion offers, introduce my wife and Herr Binswanger to you. My wife has relieved me of all obligations while I am in Vienna. I shall take leave, before my departure, to let you know at what hotel I am staying, so that you could if necessary send word there.
Most truly yours, DR. JUNG
The Jungs in Vienna
Jung visited Freud on Sunday, 3 March. See Jones, II, p. 36/32 (where the date is given as Sunday, 27 Feb.) and Jung, Memories, Dreams, Reflections, pp. 149/146 (also placed in Feb.). According to L. Bins-wanger's Sigmund Freud; Reminiscences of a Friendship (New York, 1957), he also, with the Jungs, was received by the Freud family, and he and Jung attended the Wednesday meeting of 6 March and participated in the discussion (see Minutes, I, p. 144, and below, 23 F n. 2). Binswanger remained a second week in Vienna, and Carl and Emma Jung went on to Budapest, where they visited Philip Stein (see below, 33 J n. 1), then to Fiume and by sea to the resort of Abbazia for a holiday, before returning to Zürich. (For this information, from Mrs. Jung's diary, we are indebted to Mr. Franz Jung.)
