Budapest, the 13 may 1914

Dear Professor,

Brioni since I feel physically well, which, home, does not keep pace with productivity (of thought). Hence the problem of enuresis, some ideas came to me on "amphimixis of partial drives" during the installation of the primacy of the genital area (1). I resolved not to break the thing, this time, in oral narratives or correspondence, but to write and send you as free associations on this topic, without worrying about possibly make me ridiculous.

The unanimous conclusion of the presidential election surprised me. Y he treachery hidden behind this (2)?

Dr.. Ophuijsen, I received the attached map (3), to which I replied in a spirit of appeasement, but not without noting that, according to the numbers of the Zeitschrift already published, he could realize that we are not afraid (when something requires) to go before unceremoniously ; that can give us confidence when we ensure that there was, this time, no reason to do.

The practice works well.

Greetings from your Ferenczi

"Thalassa, essay on the theory of genitality " (1924, 268), Psychoanalysis, III, p. 258. In this work, Ferenczi developed ideas which concern since 1910 already (see 155 Iron).

(2) Ferenczi's surprise for the two presidents who were not part of the Committee : Maeder à Zurich Seif et à Munich. Maeder had agreed to become interim president Abraham "in terms very helpful", Seif "in a manner laconic", as Freud wrote to Abraham, the 7 In 1914 (Correspondance Freud Abraham, p. 148)
