Dear Professor Freud,

Unfortunately I can send only a short answer today to your very friendly letter as all my time is taken up with the affairs of the Clinic.

Thanks above all for the news about Jensen. It is roughly what one would have expected. Putting it down at his age to his medical studies is splendid and suspiciously arteriosclerotic. In my entourage Gradiva is being read with delight. The women understand you by far the best and usually at once. Only the “psychologically” educated have blinkers before their eyes.

I would gladly write something for your Papers. The idea is very attractive. Only I don't know what. It would have to be something worthwhile. The Zukunft article and its like are not good enough; Harden wrung it out of me. I would never have written it of my own accord. At the moment I am particularly keen on experimental studies, but I'm afraid they are hardly suitable for a wider circle of readers. Still, it is not beyond the bounds of possibility that Dementia praecox will send up something good from its inexhaustible depths. The snag is that I am so swamped with the affairs of the Clinic that I can scarcely find the necessary time for my own work. It is impossible for me to immerse myself in the material at present. Any systematic working up of Dementia praecox is equally impossible as it demands unlimited time. I am therefore planning to change my position so as to have more free time to devote myself entirely to scientific work.
