QuotationLast night I dreamed that Dom James suddenly announced that we would have funeral and quasi-military "parades for the dead" along with every office of the dead now... I have a suspicion that this is more than a dream and that we are in for arbitrary measures-more and more as he gets older. For instance, although everyone is now tired of Daniel Rops, having finished one book of his we immediately take up another, and a third is waiting after that! No use asking for anything else. I tried to get some essays from [David] Knowles' Historian and Character read, but no use!!
