My honored colleague,

My heartfelt thanks for sending your Diagnostic Studies Association2, by whose impatience I had acquired. This is of course your last job, "Psychology and experience of association", which gave me the greatest pleasure, since, relying on experience, you said that I did not say anything as true of hitherto unexplored areas of our discipline. I expect that you will certainly still often led me to confirm, and I find so readily corrected.

Yours colleague,

Dr Freud.
