To Father Victor White
Dear Victor, 6 May 1955
The serious illness of my wife has consumed all my spare time.
She has undergone an operation so far successfully, but it has left her in a feeble state
needing careful nursing for several weeks to come.
Since I am the cause of much discomfort to you I am not sure whether you care to see me or not.
Please put conventionality aside and do not feel under any obligation.
I can understand your true situation and I would prefer not to add to its spikes and thorns.
A conventional call means nothing to me, and a straightforward talk may be painful and not desirable.
Please decide according to your judgment.
Needless to say, you can count upon my friendship .
Cordially yours, C.G. ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Page 251.
