QuotationWhere did all the rest of the time go-? I taught two classes, corrected some papers, read a few pages of [Christopher] Dawson's Progress and Religion, wrote a letter trying to sell the anthology, wrote four very stinking pages in the typewritten journal, discussed part of Saint Augustine's De Beata Vita which we are beginning to read with Fr. Philotheus-and said various prayers. This has filled up a lot of time and nothing valuable has been done.
