Anna Freud

Vienna, March 25, 1932

Dear Doctor,

In spite of your kind letter to me my father insisted on reading your manuscript himself. He wants me to tell you that even before it he had not believed in your ‘spiritual senility’, but all the less so after the reading. But I am to tell you that the pleasure he found in it unfortunately does not have any practical consequences. This is not the manuscript's fault, it is the situation the publishing house is in at the moment. My brother115 has taken it over in order to steer it slowly and cautiously out of the dangerous financial situation. This caution unfortunately implies a big reduction of production which for a while has to be confined to the journals and - to books for which the authors themselves will pay the printing costs. I hope this won't last long, but apparently it is the only way to keep the publishing firm alive.

You will understand this. For there are so many similar stories about these days. I am sorry that your letter does not sound as if you were in high spirits and that I am not doing anything now to improve these.

I am to give you my father's regards. He is well, again and again he overcomes the physical difficulties he encounters with wonderful energy and vitality.

Most sincerely yours Anna Freud
