To Jolande Jacobi

Dear Dr. Jacobi, 27 September 1946

I congratulate you on your productivity!

It is indeed in all brevity a whole compendium of erotic problems.

I have suggested only a few, mostly stylistic, alterations in the text, with pencil.

The “man who carries his Eve within him” comes from alchemy and not from the “mouth of the people,” at least so far as I know this collective organ.

I hope very much that you have recovered to some extent.

Your news that Churchill was not bored at our table was a great relief. Conversation with him was no easy matter since he directed his answers mostly to the House of Commons.*

With best greetings,

Yours sincerely,

C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. 1, Page 443.

* I nearly fell over with astonishment when I discovered that I had been seated next to Churchill-and at a University dinner too! “There will be signs and wonders. . .”!
