Shortly afterwards, in a letter of 5 August, Freud reported to his fiancée that he had spent the day with Breuer and had learnt that: 33 34 Sigmund Freud and the History of Anna O. Bertha is once again in the sanatorium in Gross-Enzersdorf,3 I believe. Breuer is constantly talking about her, says he wishes she were dead so that the poor woman could be free of her suffering. He says she will never be well again, that she is completely shattered. (Cited in Forrester, 1990, p. 26) This of course is the same letter that Jones cited in his own revision of the Anna O.
If this was compounded with a renewed state of depression it could certainly be consistent with Breuer’s report to Freud. Compare Freud’s second-hand account of Bertha’s misery with what Laupus had written the year before in his report on her stay in Bellevue: ‘Under the burden of neuralgia, even when this was relieved by morphine, she could express despair of a happier future…’ (Hirschmüller, 1989, p. 292). The likelihood is that it was the sheer physical pain of her neuralgic symptoms which was the cause of her misery, rather than any continuation of her hysterical loss of language, which by all accounts caused her little discomfort or distress even when she was aware of it.
294, 296). On the balance of probability this is surely most likely to have been one of the principal benefits expected from her admission to the Sanatorium Bellevue. Schweighofer is in no doubt about this: ‘From Breuer’s letters it emerges unambiguously that withdrawal from chloral and morphine was to be the primary goal of the cure in Kreuzlingen’ (Schweighofer, 1987, p. 64). Gerhard Fichtner appears to have drawn a similar conclusion (in Freud and Binswanger, 2003, p. xiii), as has Eissler (2001, p.
