[Anna Freud to Ludwig Binswanger]

Dear Dr. Binswanger,

My mother has shown me what you wrote to her about my father's letters. You are quite right, of course, and I had already discussed something similar with Dr. Bibring1 and Kris.2 There is naturally no intention of publishing these letters either immediately or in the near future. But I should like to bring them together all the same, originals or copies, whichever the owners prefer. Then in due course it can be decided what is of scientific interest and what is purely personal. I hope to make an appeal for such letters in the next but one issue of the Zeitschrift, in which another of my father's posthumous writings is due to appear.3 Do you think there will be a good response?4 And may I ask you to intercede with your close associates to send me copies? Anything that is too personal can of course be omitted.

In his lifetime we were all so wasteful of everything he put out, since there was always so much of it. Now one would very much like to collect it all together again.

With kind regards,

Yours, Anna Freud
