I was very pleased to see your writing again. It is understandable that one would like to communicate good things, but that doesn't happen every day and can't fill up a correspondence. In the meantime, you do report about hopes and advances; in some points fulfillment must soon ensue. As to the chance at the university, it certainly should be considered that all your patrons won't remain in office long enough for a decision to take place. Marriage and living quarters are certainly more assured, but I would very much wish for you to get the teaching position.
Your paper on technique1 is pure analytic gold, and can only be completely appreciated by the worker. In a few places I would have felt like adding a continuing or concluding statement.
The matter of the big fund is not so bad as you think. Toni did commit himself energetically later on and finally got the promise from Bódy that the matter will be settled favorably at the next visit.
Toni is, as you yourself have found, wild and in an uproar, subjectively very well, objectively in resistance. I expect with certainty that the sublimation which has now been removed will be restored on a more secure basis after the treatment. Provided that the real conditions in the business don't bring a premature end to his absence or bring about a new illusory cure!
You will certainly learn about all our prospects and works through Rank, who is functioning flawlessly. We will, naturally, especially speed up your book.
