Küsnach bei Zürich, 14 October 1909

Dear Professor Freud,

Occasionally a spasm of homesickness for you comes over me, but only occasionally; otherwise I am back into my stride. The analysis on the voyage home has done me a lot of good. I have much zest and little opportunity for scientific work, by which I do not mean instructing students. In this respect I am doing far too much at present. What would you think if I planned to organize things in such a way as to exploit the situation financially a bit? I find it quite as necessary to guard myself against so-called normal people as against neurotics (the differences between them are remarkably small). I hold myself justified in this depravity, for these people will draw a fat profit later on while I merely lose time and energy for work.

How goes it with your daughter, or rather, your two daughters? You say you found both your elder daughters ill.

Have you seen the new article by Friedländer?1 And Siemerling's, I think in the Archiv,2 on the Jahrbuch? Imagine, Friedländer was with me yesterday, sweet as sugar and wagging his tail. He would like to be answered à tout prix, you were absolutely right.
