A 1cm tear on the lower margin of the 2nd letter very slightly affecting the first letter of the final word, not affecting the reading. Very moving and intimate letters from Sigmund Freud to his sick former student Elis Révész a few days before her death and a condolences letter to her husband, Hungarian psychoanalyst Sandor Radó.Elie Révész was a Freud's student in the 1910s. Once she became psychoanalyst (of the so called "First generation"), she analysed Sandor Radó who she then married.When she got sick, Freud was informed by his friend and colleague Sandor Ferenczy and then send her a comforting letter: "I am writing to you with my sincere wishes for your speed and complete recovery (.) I am assuming your care is in the most experienced hands. Ferenczi, I am certain, will be keeping me informed". She died a couple of days after the letter arrived. Freud then sent a moving letter to the widower, single father, and prominent Hungarian psychoanalyst Sandor Rado: "I am totally devastated over that outcome (.) Please do accept the expressions of my most sincere sympathy. (.) while a student of mine, your wife had been particularly dear to me (.) I was always impressed by her conduct, her quick grasp of any situation (.) Who is taking care of your little daughter? That sweet darling at her tender age being robbed of her mother's protection left to cope in this cruel world."Sandor Radó decided to move to the United States shortly after the death of his wife, where he took part of creation of the psychoanalytic department of Columbia University.
