LETTER : Dragged in

Sir: Your piece (Diary, 4 April) about Chevalier d'Eon and his transvestism was amusing, but I have to take seriously the putting of words into the mouth of Sigmund Freud. "Eonism" was coined by Henry Havelock Ellis, who considered it simpler than "transvestism". As a matter of fact, Freud wrote nothing on this subject.
