Karl Abraham


Berlin W.
11 January 1911

Dear Professor,

Segantini is finished and is coming to you as soon as it has been copied.

Many thanks for your letter. I am glad that the Schriften zur angewandten Seelenkunde are succeeding each other so rapidly. Today I have to ask you something related to them.

In the last session of our local group, a Russian doctor, Frl. Dr Rosenthal, who had already been our guest on several occasions, gave a talk: “Psychoanalytical Remarks on Karin Michaëlis's ‘The Dangerous Age’”.1 The lecture was—particularly for a beginner who was in Zurich for a short time and had a little more experience with me—quite outstanding and really deserves to be published. The question is, where. According to the calculations of the authoress, two to three printed sheets could come out. As the subject is topical, it would be desirable for it to appear soon. I thought I might do it like this: I will go through the work in detail with Frl. Dr R., then send it to you and ask your opinion as to whether the paper is suitable for the Sammlung [Schriften] (and whether we would have to wait not too long for publication). Otherwise I would ask you to hand the manuscript on to the Zentralblatt. Do you agree with this?

I am quite pleased with our group. In February Stegmann—who comes from Dresden every time—is speaking on asthma.

The main question that interests us here is the next congress. Presumably it will again be at Easter? Do you know something definite about it already?

Recently I had a visit from a doctor from Stockholm, who was on his way to you.2 He was very well-informed. My ambition as President of the local group is to extend it as soon as possible to Scandinavia.

With cordial greetings from house to house,
