Sándor Ferenczi

Budapest, October 8, 1918

Dear Professor,

The day before yesterday I was called on the telephone by the chief medical officer of the Budapest Military Command, the general staff physician, who attended the Congress.1 He informed me that he is finished with his report to the War Ministry, in which he recommends instituting a Ψα. ward in Budapest. He asked me for suggestions about this plan. I said: first we should have a smaller experimental ward for about thirty patients. At his request I then assumed its direction in principle, but I immediately remarked that I definitely need an assistant who knows the field. I named Eitingon and Hollós. He made difficulties and wants emphatically that I look for an assistant in Budapest. Today, we (Dr. v. Freund, Lévy, and I) visited the chief medical officer, but he wasn't in Budapest. I made my position clear to the representative chief staff physician and vehemently emphasized the necessity of appointing one of the individuals named as an assistant.—Dr. Lévy promised to approach directly the head of the health services in Vienna.

These are the concerns that we couldn't even dream about before. The question: Eitingon or Hollós?—if I had to decide I would settle to the detriment of Hollós. Unless we succeed in getting both. Eitingon is having brilliant successes with hypnosis. He would still only have to include catharsis.—For my part, I want to cultivate the pure, not hypnotic, analysis.
