33 J

Burghölzli Zurich,

28. WE.07.

Honored Professor!

First some communications "business" : Dr Stein1 Budapest and another neurologist, Dr Ferenczi 2, Once you want to visit Vienna and asked me to ask you when you visit would be the most convenient. Dr Stein is a very suitable, a good intel-ligence, who worked experimentally with me. There is still quite a beginner in the art, but remarkably quickly and understood it exercises effective. I think the best thing will put you directly in touch with him (Dr Stein, Semmelweis street 11, Budapest).

Muthmann was assistant to the insane asylum Basel. I unfortunately never had a personal relationship with him. I immediately ordered his book. It seems, tells me Bleuler, there was a lot of fun in a passage (corrected), which is highly significant P manly courager Wolff (3). Muthmann is also not Swiss, but may have learned what Switzerland spine.

The Surgeon General Bolte (4) Bremen, who recently sided with you, and whose work will appear in the Journal of General Psychiatry, Bremen is a, AFAIK; it is therefore a free city of the empire. The environment is apparently much.

In the same letter I send you the work of one of my students, that you may be interested in. Indeed, I believe that the basic ideas of this work is to develop a science leave statistical complexes.

Thanks to your kind sending I saw with heartfelt joy that your Psychopathology of everyday life sees its second edition. It's good that you have greatly expanded the text; more there Sample, better. I hope that soon you will also produce a new edition of the’ Interpretation of dreams (5), as it sometimes seems to me that your prophecy comes true, to know that you have drilled the next ten years. This already moving in different directions : you probably received the work'Otto Gross 6; I must say that there, I can not well allow me- suade you need more or less just be the stonemason who works unfinished dome system Wernicke 7. It is good, however, be demonstrated all lines that converge toward you. Gross work still contains many strange things, although in the end he has an excellent understanding. I am very eager to hear what you say.

What are your destiny Materials? Do you have new reports?

It may interest you to know that my patient (the. pr.) with the transfer of the brother had suddenly, last-larly, thoughts megalomaniac : she claims to have lived itself the content of the Sexual question 8 Forel, stands for parent of many distinguished people, doctors suspect all kinds of sex, wants EPU-one service assistant doctors, another (married doctor) have knocked up a patient, some girl Lüders, just a girl Skudler, Should also divorce his wife. (We call Bitch a person who has a bad sexual reputation!) I do not know anything more detailed. The doctor wants to marry her door by chance the same name as (his brother!)

My travel experiences are poor. I talked to Janet and am very disappointed. He did that quite primitive knowledge of dem. pr. The latest things, you included, it does nothing. He is buried in his drawings, and, by the bye, it is only intelligence, but not a personality, conversationalist and a flat type of bourgeois poor. A very bad joke : the splendor of treatment in isolation Dejerine (9) the Salpêtrière. All this gave me a feeling unspeakably childish, and not less puerile smoke heights which fogs every head in such a clinical. These people are fifty years behind! It took me about nerves, so I gave in London, where there is much less to seek. I am however devoted to the Loire castles. There is therefore no question of Parisian complex. Unfortunately my time is still taken. Three candidates who want to work with me I have been proposed, it is extremely international : one of Switzerland, one of Budapest and Boston. Germany will be misrepresented. The issue of a publication Archives becomes more urgent in these conditions. I want to start looking at things more closely. The question of the editor will probably difficulties. But before undertaking anything definitive in this direction, I have my rake IIand volume Diagnostic studies of association; it cost me a lot of work; for student work to give more than own work.

Binswanger jun. now working psychoanalytically in Jena. Hopefully he will leave lasting traces. His uncle would visit my. Unfortunately I do not find much time, useful if it can be.

Receive the best greetings from your always devoted
