Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, February 15,1 1918

Dear Professor,

With the conditions with the mails and railways being what they are, it is not superfluous to ask whether you have received the registered mailing (Stigmata).

You would soon have to gather information about Csorba, naturally with reference to the promise that was given to you at the time.

There are now two wonderful rooms and additional space to be had in a villa in the vicinity of Budapest.

I, too, am struggling with the residential calamity. The talk now is about a very large and expensive apartment. Ask Fräulein Dr. Révész2 if she is, perhaps, inclined to take over two—rather expensive—rooms in this apartment (in the inner city). For the time being, however, Frau G.'s sister wants to have them—and, finally, the apartment isn't at my disposal at all. It's a cross to bear!

My indisposition during my stay in Vienna is gradually increasing to a mild relapse of the Basedow conditions (especially cardiac weakness). With an appropriate life-style, the symptoms are gradually abating. I don't go to the hospital for the time being. The decision about my dismissal should come in eight to ten days. If it turns out to be negative, then I will not be ashamed to apply for a longer leave by way of superarbitrium.3

Your two essays (Metapsychology of Dream Processes, Dream and Melancholia)4 are occupying me constantly. Only now does one comprehend the structure of the Ψ apparatus. But I fear you are correct in your assumption that at most one to two people will grasp the extent of what is being revealed. It will become necessary to revise the concept of introjection on the basis of the new findings. I will reflect on this.
