Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, June 14, 1918

Dear Professor,

I am pleased that the matter of living accommodations has been settled, at least for August. No understanding about the fourth room has come to me. Perhaps, when you get the chance, you will tell that to Dr. v. Freund, whom, by the way, I will immediately inform after the contract from Csorba arrives.—

Naturally it would be very nice if you also got rooms for July; but I consider that very improbable. But—I notice—your stay in Köbánya doesn't play any role at all in your plans. Up to now I had been instructed otherwise by Dr. Freund; and I am sorry to have to pass up our meeting in July.—

Regarding my own circumstances, this much only briefly, that the divorce proceeding seems finally to have gotten on the normal track. If I hadn't been made distrustful by experience, I would say that the wedding will take place in five to six weeks. But in the process Dr. Pálos is dropping mysterious hints about the nemesis to whose service he intends to dedicate himself henceforth.

Healthwise (psychically and physically), I can't report anything bad about myself.

You have presumably been oriented about our society by Dr. Freund.

The enclosed letter from the crazy Swedish woman1 provides us with interesting insights into Dr. Groddeck's method of treatment. He must be a very uncritical man if he initiates a patient like this Swede into his correspondence with you. It strikes me altogether as more and more probable that Groddeck is not curing at all with analysis, but rather that with the aid of the transference he puts the plastic power of hysteria into the service of the organic tendency to heal.
