Sándor Ferenczi

Dr. Ferenczi Sándor Idegorvos

Budapest, January 19, 1919

Dear Professor,

I learned from a letter from Jones, which I received a few days ago by way of Sachs, about the demise of good old Putnam,1 who is supposed to have expired in his sleep, therefore painlessly. I regret uncommonly the loss of that kind and honest man. His manful stand in favor of psychoanalysis in and after Worcester was a significant help to us in America. I think we owe a special reverence to his memory, which I envision such that you yourself write his obituary and the Zeitschrift, if possible, also publishes his portrait. At the same time, Rank should compile a list of his psychoanalytic works. I was about to look up Professor Coolidge2 of Harvard, who is staying here with the American commission, and inquire about Putnam when I received the news from Jones.

From Jones's letter I also mention the statement that Ψα. made “mighty progress” in England during the war.3 Do you know any more about that?— At the same time, I ask you whether we should do something now about restoring contact with the Entente—Ψα., and if so, what? Or should I wait until the conclusion of the peace negotiations?

The Budapest Society is functioning well, beyond expectations. Our honorary Christian, Dr. v. Felszeghy, recently produced a very nice paper about the psychoanalysis of panic, in which he actually gave the Ψα. interpretation of the Pan legend.4 The discussions are instructive and rich in content.—

At the request of Frau Dr.
