Dear Professor Freud,

In the interval since my last letter I have been under such pressure that I am now pretty flattened. End of last week Claparède,1 Directeur du Laboratoire de Psychologie expérimentale de Genève, was with me in order to get himself inducted into the technique of the association test. Your teachings have already gained a firm foothold among psychologists in Geneva, though not everything has been digested. The immediate result of Claparède's visit will, however, turn out primarily to my advantage. C. wants to publish a big over-all report on my work in the Archives de psychologie.2 This would be yet another symptom that our cause is making headway. Flournoy3 is extremely interested in it too. Next week I have to go to Paris and London for 10 days. I shall take this opportunity to call on Janet and interview him about you.

Your annotations on my cases are naturally a great joy to me, for only so can I see how you approach a case, what you think right, and how you abstract more general rules. I entirely agree with you when you say they haven't been sufficiently understood. Undoubtedly they haven't. But with Dem. praec. one learns to be content with little.

As for the first case with the transposition to the brother, I should add: On the morning of the brother's wedding she suddenly got the idea of jumping over a wide drainage ditch, 4 metres deep, hence the distortio pedis.
