Cher Ami,

You will probably receive our honorable president's invitation to rule on the place of the next congress. This is incor-rect again, as another decision was made at the Congress What do you do? Do not give any response until you have consulted with us, Berlin and London. Rank you write more.

Jones sent a letter today from Putnam in which he informs us that his youngest daughter 17 years (not Griselda) died of diabetes.

This hateful strike (3) continues to paralyze us.

With my cordial greetings to you and Mrs. G.,

Your Freud A
