Prof.. Dr. Freud

the 22 June 1914 Vienna, IX. Berggasse 19

Cher Ami,

We live in expectation of the "bomb" that must be shipped upon arrival. For the time being, anything that could interest me more strongly.

Your contributions or sketches, I also look forward. It seems to me that the Zeitschrift now needs some strong achievements. Regarding the ambivalence, should think especially the work of Bleuler (1). Abraham, in Prince, right in his remarks about the work listed, but it is really not a good time to brandish the red pencil criticism, otherwise we have no contribution; we must admit a diversity of viewpoints, or an alloy with a certain percentage of non-sense. – Putnam wrote me, me too, more kindly than usual (2). It is possible that four American, we gardions three years after the schism (3).

Regarding the summer, I will reveal that I have a craving for a time of solitude, because in Seis I do work for Kraus (4), which can not be cured in the course of quiet walks. After, all depend on when I'm done with this work, four weeks, perhaps, thus 4 or 5 September. Abraham will come before Congress. That would be fine then, if we could go all the period from 18 until September to go to Holland or Hamburg. The period 4 to 18 September has not yet taken, may remain Seis us; I will inform you of each phase.

You really should attend the conference occultist (5). But after the, it is not compatible with our convention (16-24 October!).

A Madame G., hi my cordial.

Otherwise, I work as a new real beast, of 8 am to 9 ½ hour evening!

In his letter of 2 June, Putnam had rented the study of Freud on Moses (Freud, 1914A), ("The Moses of Michelangelo", Tests applied psychoanalysis, pp. 9-40) and shared the view of Freud Adler : "I think you just see; I also believe that my own complex push me too anxious to attempts to ” justice “, which are, actually, that attempts at conciliation " (Hale, Putnam, p. 204).
