QuotationBrother Alberic got (rare) copy of [John of] Ford's life of Wulfric of Haselbury [Wulfric of Haselbury, 1933] from the Library of Congress and, having finished, passed it on to me. I find it very rich indeed. Must work on it. Will get pictures of parts of it. A great theology of mystical life-and solitary life-fine, balanced, optimistic, Biblical. How much I need it!
