Dear Dr Brill
I am glad you recieved my photograph
and I got your letter of Dec 16th. For
I confess I was tempted to do you wrong,
wondering why you could not spare
the time to give me answer. Now
I see a letter must have been lost
as your last one has no relation
to the questions I raised in mine.
Among others I asked you, whether
the money you intended to send me, was
lawfully mine (royalties) or a loan
from your side. The latter I declined
for the time being,
toin case of the
former I begged you to send it at
once to the account of my son Ernst
at Munich. Now you write having
sent a sum of # 1200 to this account,
but I nevertheless assume, it is neither
a loan nor my property, but your
contribution to the funds of the
Anglo-american Journal and I
want you to confirm this.
I am very happy to learn that
you can do so much for this enter
prise, and I know its success is
largely depending on your mental
and material subventions.
As regards your complaints on the spreading
of wild analysis in your country, I
cannot see what there is to be done
against this plague, unless the activity
of the true adherers and the authority
of the new Journal will keep it down.
Jones insists on holding the congress
at the Hague first week of Sept,
so if nothing intervenes, I may look
forward to a meeting with you
after so many years lapse, to thank
you for your hard work in favour
of our common cause as an inter
preter, as a physician and as a man
of science. I hope to get good news
about your family too.
You know we are passing a very bad
time in Austria, but friends are
providing in so kind a way for myself
and family that we feel the
hardships decidedly less than other
I acknowledged the receipt of Wit, Leonardo,
and Totem, let me repeat my wish
to get the Reflections war etc, the ΨA move
ment and the one not translated by
you (Gradiva, I think).
In eager expectation of
your news yours
