Dear Wilhelm,

A week ago Oli went to bed with something that soon proved to be measles; yesterday Ernst and Sophie and today Anna came down with it, so we now have quite a nice hospital. It went off rather well for Oli; for the others, we shall have to wait and see. We immediately sent Martin to Mrs. A., a very dear friend and patient whose only son attends the same high school, so that Martin will not have to miss school for weeks on end. He has been doing much better in school lately. Mathilde must stay at home. Minna is distinctly better; she is up and around for a few hours every day, without her pulse rising much above 100; afterward she usually has severe cardiac and intercostal pains.

I have just completed the second treatise, shall be able to correct and patch up both of them during the coming weeks, and shall then attend to arranging simultaneous publication. At his request I let Oscar read “Dreams and Hysteria,” but I derived little joy from it.1 I shall make no further attempt to break through my isolation. Otherwise these are very bleak times, outstandingly bleak!

There is a vague prospect of my arriving in Berlin next Sunday to see a patient from Vienna who is in a private sanatorium about half an hour away from the city. I plan to stay for two days. So I hope to spend a few hours in the evening with you and at last get to see the children whom I have not yet met. I shall not have as much free time as I had on previous visits to Berlin.
