Sigmund Freud

[SET279a2]Vienna IX, Berggasse 19. January 29, 1926

[SET279a3]Unforgettable one! By what troubles and sufferings must you have fought your way up to such a height of humanity as yours!

[SET279a4]Long years before I saw you, I had honoured you as an artist and as an apostle of the love of mankind. I was myself a disciple of the love of mankind, not from sentimental motives or in pursuit of an ideal, but for sober, economic reasons, because, our inborn instincts and the world around us being what they are, I could not but regard that love as no less essential for the survival of the human race than such things as technology.

[SET279a5]And when at last I came to know you personally, I was surprised to find that you can value strength and energy so highly and that you yourself embody such force of will.

[SET279a6]May the next decade bring you nothing but fulfilments!

[SET279a7]Most cordially yours

[SET279a8]Sigm. Freud, aetat. 70.
