Letter from Sigmund Freud to Sándor Ferenczi, August 20, 1917
Csorbató, August 20, 1917
That is good news! You imagined it to be much more difficult. Now, no more hesitation; speed things up as soon as it goes. I have no doubt that you will bless the decision. But you won't understand then why you made it so late.
We didn't go to Lomnicz, but rather moved into a room with veranda on the ground floor in the same house, where I am now writing to you, amid a swarm of insects, halfway onto the street. Nevertheless it is very beautiful.
Anna left yesterday morning; still no news from her, perhaps on account of Saint Stephen's Day.1 I also hope that she will like it very much.
We plan to leave on the 30th or 31st, probably by way of Pressburg and with Grete Ilm, with whom we are on very good terms. Since we can't take anything along to Vienna, we hope that no more provisions will come. The last today was a basket with approximately forty to fifty eggs from Eitingon.
Today a manuscript from Binswanger, Chapter I of Part II of his big work, which illuminates the relationship of ΨA to strict psychology.2 I will check to see in Vienna if I still have the first part and then send both to you.
With Kraus3 I had to think of Mephistopheles' remark: It is certainly nice of a great man, etc.4
Kind regards and congratulations.
