My dear Mrs. Mellon, 19 June 1940

Thank you for your friendly letter, which arrived today.

I send you these few words in haste, because this evening at 7 o’clock the last mail for U.S.A. will leave Switzerland.

From now on all communications will be interrupted.

I think the night has descended upon Europe.

Heaven knows if and when and under which conditions we shall meet again.

There is only one certainty-nothing can put out the light within.

Every good wish to you and to your husband!

Yours affectionately,

C.G. Jun g ~Carl Jung, Letters Vol. I, Pages 283-284
