On a four-page letter, addressed to Freud by "Alexander Stiglitz, Rožnava [Rosenau], Slovensko. C. S. R" (Eastern Slovakia) and dated November 20, 1933. Stiglitz describes some cases of stammering that occurred in his family and asks whether and under which circumstances a treatment of his brother might be possible: "I note that my father also began to stammer when he was 11, after falling on his head from a height of about eight feet; the impediment now concerns almost exclusively the sound K. His bother would stammer for some time, apparently without reason, but this ceased at age 19. In the case of my brother, the impediment worsened, especially in the last two years. At the moment, the spasmodically gaping mouth is highly characteristic. He stammers at every sound, most strongly probably at the labials M, P, F (but also A), somewhat less so at the gutturals. It distresses him; he becomes nervous, irritable, perspires. (Body weight 53 kgs, height 168 cm.) He works at my father's inn (with the elder brother) [...]". - Under Stiglitz's letter, Freud noted "Zur gefälligen Beantwort[un]g | 10/XII | Ihr Freud", leaving the reply to Paul Federn.
