Sigmund Freud

Vienna
May 1931

Dear Friend

You answered my pleasantry1 with the most precious information about your own person. My profound thanks for it.

Approaching life's inevitable end, reminded of it by yet another operation and aware that I am unlikely to see you again, I may confess to you that I have rarely experienced that mysterious attraction of one human being for another as vividly as I have with you; it is somehow bound up, perhaps, with the awareness of our being so different.

Farewell!
Your
Freud
