C. G. Jung

47 J

Burghölzli-Zürich, 1 October 19071

Dear Professor Freud,

I don't think you can have got my last letter, which I sent to Rome nearly a week ago. The first meeting of our Society was very interesting.

Medallion, commissioned by Freud's friends in honour of his 50th birthday, 1906. By Karl Maria Schwerdtner. See 45 F, 48 J

There were 12 people present. One of our assistants2 discussed the sexual symbolism of a catatonic and Riklin gave an analysis of “The Confessions of a Beautiful Soul.”3 Both lectures were followed by a lively and fruitful discussion. Next time Director Bertschinger4 (a pupil of Forel's, and now an active advocate of your ideas) will talk on “psychosynthesis,”5 of which he has had only negative experiences.

With best regards,

Most sincerely yours, JUNG
