Burghölzli-Zürich, 9 September 1908

Dear Professor Freud,

I got back from my holiday yesterday, much too early for my subjective feelings. Still, the holiday brought me a little recuperation so that I am in a somewhat fresher mood for work. The impetus, however, is slight.

I hope my last letter, written about 18 days ago, reached you safely. I am sending this to Vienna as I don't know your English address. Please let me know fairly soon when you are thinking of coming. I'd like to arrange things in such a way that I have as little as possible to do with the donkey work in the Clinic during your visit. I am looking forward so much to talking with you again in peace, for since I saw you in Vienna very, very many things have changed, much is new and further progress has been made. In this respect Gross as a contrast, no matter how hard to digest, did me a world of good. In spite of his prickliness, talk with him is wonderfully stimulating. I have missed that no end. Only once since then have I had the luck to talk with a really intelligent man, and that was with Prof. Meyer of New York. I think I have already told you about his radical views in my last letter. Bleuler is difficult to bear with in the long run; his infantilisms are intolerable and he ruthlessly acts out his complexes by dint of displacements (naturally!). It's still very hard to talk to him as I am highly suspicious of his goodwill, etc. etc.

I hope you are having good weather in England and omnium rerum satietatem.
