Sigmund Freud skriver til sin venn Wilhelm Fliess i Berlin (her gjengitt i engelsk oversettelse -- originalen er på tysk):
"Dearest Wilhelm, . . . I did of course immediately inform Rosanes of your recommendations concerning E.
For me you remain the physician, the type of man into whose hands one confidently puts one's life and that of one's family.
