Letter from Sándor Ferenczi to Sigmund Freud, August 27, 1916
Budapest, August 27, 1916
Grand Hôtel Royal
My leave from September 15 to October 1 is almost assured. I would be very grateful to you if you would let me know whether you will already [be] in Vienna at this time—and, if not—where you will be staying.
I received cards in short succession from two of your sons. From Ernst from Vienna and Oliver from Cracow.—Rank is coming to Budapest on September 4 to the Danube Conference, and I have also invited Sachs for these days. Too bad you can't be here in order to preside over the editorial session.1
There is little to say about me. Physically excellent. Amost all ailments gone, as if blown away. Lately also more intellectually stimulated; a few (I think) very good ideas have surfaced in me. The analyses are going very well.—What still remains is the writinginhibition and the conscious indecision.
The speeches in Parliament last week2 were refreshingly honest. It is questionable, however, whether they will change anything in the state of affairs.
I await your news. It would be nice to combine the useful (the treatment) with the pleasant (a trip together).
