To Ernest Jones

Dear Jones, 22 February 1952

Freud’s letters in my possession are not particularly important.

They chiefly contain remarks about publishers or the organization of the Psychoanalytical Society.

And some others are too personal.

As a matter of fact I don’t care for their publication.

On the whole they wouldn’t be an important contribution to Freud’s biography.

My personal recollections on the other hand are a chapter for itself.

They have very much to do with Freud’s psychology, but since there is no witness except myself I prefer to refrain from unsubstantiated
tales about the dead.

Hoping you will understand my motives,

I remain,

Very truly yours,

C.G. Jung ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. II, Pages 40-41.
