In “Dreams” Jung wrote the following entry concerning the events of this night: “3. I. 17. /

Night of 2/ 3. I. / Terrible. Didn’t sleep until 2.30. Terrible anxiety feeling of fire within. Eerie.

I in Kusnacht,

family in Schaffhausen.

My wife didn’t sleep the entire night.

The children also slept badly. Agathli saw a ghost.

The same night was just as bad and eerie for Mrs Keller. / Dream toward morning.

Something explodes in the air, out of which a white gull or snow goose appears. It disappears.

I held 3 feathers in my hand- indistinct things happened.

Finally my children discovered a white feather on my head that I keep as a visible sign, as proof of the wonder. /

In Lib. nov. serpent image I I I incent.” [stimulus to snake image III in Liber Novus]” (p. 1).

This appears to refer to Image 54 in the calligraphic volume.

The reference is to Tina Keller.
