"THE WAYS OF THE LORD ARE MARVELOUS. AMEN" JUNG, CARL GUSTAV. Autograph Letter Signed, "Jung," to "My dear Kranefeldt!," in German, disapproving of a report written by Meyer of Jung's German seminar, inquiring whether he would write a report for Jung, and congratulating him on the birth of a child. 1 1/2 pages, oblong 8vo, "Dr. C.G. Jung" stationery; vertical folds. Küsnacht, 9 January 1932

Additional Details

"Last year Meyer wrote a little report on my German seminar. This year, he tried it again, but it turned out all wrong, mired down in emotional mush. I suppressed it. Would you be interested in doing something of that sort--with the necessary prudence? It wouldn't have to be anything long; just not 'metaphorical,' but rather stressing the epistemological difficulty.
"Incidentally, I'm afraid that I haven't yet congratulated you on the birth of a physical offshoot . . . . The ways of the Lord are marvelous. Amen. One can do nothing of significance differently. You can tell from this insight that I am getting old."
