[Ernest Jones, Welsh neurologist and psychoanalyst, official biographer of Sigmund Freud.] Typed Letter Signed ('Ernest Jones | MD.') to 'Dr. Culpin', i.e. Millais Culpin, on a 'remark' by Sir Patrick Hastings and Culpin's new professorship.

Ernest Jones [Alfred Ernest Jones] (1879-1958), Welsh neurologist and psychoanalyst, official biographer of Sigmund Freud [Millais Culpin, psychologist; Sir Patrick Gardiner Hastings, barrister]
Publication details: 
On letterhead of 81 Harley Street, London, W1. 18 May 1931.

For the recipient Millais Culpin (1874-1952), see the Oxford DNB. The first part of the letter concerns an incident involving the celebrated barrister Sir Patrick Hastings (1880-1952), who would appear from Jones's account to have made a remark – objectionable to Jones and Culpin – 'about the distinction' (between psychiatry and psychology?), in response to a question from a judge (in a case in which Culpin had been called as a medical witness?).

Written a few months before Bleuler's death to an unnamed recipient ('Liebster Freund!'), regarding the possibility of consciousness within the plant kingdom. As a nonbotanist ('als Nichtbotaniker') Bleuler has no knowledge of 'die Falle, wo Pflanzen Gedichtnis oder sonst eine psyche-artige Funktion zeigen', with the exception of 'der Mimosen', and it strikes him ' dass ich eigentlich die Pflicht hatte, das Material so weit als moglich zu kennen, bevor ich etwas drucken lasse'.

His face is ashen – Stadelmann never saw the sun, working only at night – and his ears are so large that they evoke another nocturnal creature, a bat.
