Rilke being an exception). For already 20 years, Lou practises psycho-analysis: "(...) die psychoanalytische Arbeit an Menschen; ich weiss nicht, ob Ihnen das ein Begrif ist? Est ist mir der schönste aller Berufe. In Holland haben wir ausgezeichnete Psychoanalytiker: A v Stärcke, Ophuizen, Van Emden etc." In her letter of 14 February 1932, Lou complains about her country's condition: "Alles andere in Deutschland ist aber zum Verzweifeln trübe und [..?]: man maltraitiert das arme Deutschland wirklich zu sehr."
