|"It is a dozens of years since I myself had a
true anxiety-dream. But I remember one from my seventh or eight year, which I submitted to
interpretation some thirty years later. It was a very vivid one, and in it I saw my
beloved mother, with a peculiarly peaceful, sleeping expresion on her features, being
carried into the room by two (or three) people with bird's beakds and laid upon the bed. I
awoke in tears and screaming, and interrupted my parent's sleep. The strangely draped and
unnaturally tall figures withd birds' beakds were derifed from illustrations to
Philippson's Bible. I fancy they must have been gods with falcons' heads from an ancient
Egyptian funerary relief."
