Dear Fraulein N., 23 May 1935

As it is at the moment essentially a question of consolidating your personality,

I would strongly advise you to do this bit of analysis with a woman, since experience has shown that analysis with a man always has an effect on the animus, which for its part loosens up the personality again, whereas analysis with a woman tends on the contrary to have a “precipitating” effect.

With best regards,

Yours sincerely,
