Sigmund Freud

Hotel Meissl & Schadn
Vienna, July 20, 1904

Dear Sigmund:

I have come across a book by Weininger,1 in the first biological part of which I find, to my consternation, a description of my ideas on bisexuality and the nature of sexual attraction consequent upon it — feminine men attract masculine women and vice versa. From a quotation in it I see that Weininger knew Swoboda — your pupil — (before the publication of his book), and I learned here that the two men were intimi. I have no doubt that Weininger obtained knowledge of my ideas via you and misused someone else's property. What do you know about it? Would you kindly give me a frank reply (to my Berlin address, because I am leaving Vienna on the evening of the 23rd).

With cordial greetings,

Your

Wilh.
