Letter 73 from Sigmund Freud to Wilhelm Fliess (31st October 1897): Translated by James Strachey :

: p227-228 in Marie Bonaparte, Anna Freud, and Ernst Kris, (Eds.), The origins of psycho-analysis: Letters to Wilhelm Fliess, drafts and notes, 1887-1902, (Eric Mosbacher & James Strachey, Trans.), London: Imago, 1954:

“…At the moment another period lacking in results has set in. Do you think that children’s talk in their sleep belongs to their dreams? If so, I can introduce you to the very latest wishdream. Little Anna, aged one-and-a-half, had to fast for a day at Aussee, because she had been sick in the morning, which was attributed to eating strawberries. During the night she called out a whole menu in her sleep: “Stwawbewwies, wild stwawbewwies, omblet, pudden !” I may perhaps already have told you this. [1] Footnote 1: See Interpretation of Dreams :1900 : SE: p.130 ; and “On Dreams” (1901 a).”
