Sándor Ferenczi

Györ, August 24, 1915

Dear Professor,

A second, more morose stage of wartime seems to have begun for me lately. No sooner had I reported back to Pápa on the 19th from my “study trip” to Vienna and Graz when an order came by telegram from the Higher Command assigning me to duty in determining those fit for military service. On the 20th I went to Veszprém,1 the day before yesterday to Györ, where I have now been for three days testing the poor 43-50-year-olds for their fitness for war. I will stay here for a full three weeks. I am living in the Hotel Royal; under my room a Gypsy band plays half the night through. I have, to be sure, also brought along books to read and also writing paper, but my mood is not such that I could write a meaningful sentence. I will be away from Pápa for a full six weeks. I will take steps from here to set up the section for patients with speech and psychic disabilities—without the least hope of success.

The small details of my study trip which I wanted to share with you have escaped me in the new surroundings. I was with Rank in Vienna for a few hours. He was sweet, as always, and—even in the new situation—in a good mood—something that I couldn't say about myself.

Kind
