A letter from Winnicott to Enid Balint supporting her paper, presented to the BPAS, and asking her to omit reference to oral dependence in his work. He maintains a distinction between regression to dependence, and instinctual regression. Winnicott laments the tendency in the BPAS to interpret the material of the papers of colleagues, instead of properly discussing it.
