Dear friend,

Luckily, less interesting news than usual. I was greatly entertained by your return of symptoms; let us hope you won't lose the impression again. Read your critique of Régis and Hesnard1 again in proof and gladly confirm that it is excellent and counterbalances some article in intellectual content. Critiques of this kind can confer prominence on a person and a journal.

I haven't gotten any further in the uncertainty about the future of the Zeitschrift. Heller, on whom I want to foist the elementary lecture so that he will feel bound to another location, has been rudely avoiding me for two weeks, doesn't respond, and is tempting me to offer the same bait to Deuticke.2 I would have the first issue (on parapraxes) done, if only in rough draft. I won't write down Dreams at all before, but rather only after, each lecture.

My practice has picked up again, to six hours.

Ernst was sent to Görz for rest and recreation after the demise of his unit, and he has returned. In the meantime, his promotion to cadet came through. His last news of the 10th still reports quiet. Yesterday Oli was here unexpectedly, perhaps for the last time before his marriage, the date of which could not be set because of the condition of her dying father. Work and the prospect of a beloved companion are doing him much good; it will be an interesting experiment, since she, in agreement with him, is not giving up her profession, but rather wants to finish her studies.

I don't believe in peace, but rather in an increase in the bitterness and ruthlessness in the second year of the war.
