QuotationYour new book May Man Prevail has reached me and I am reading it with the greatest interest. I think it is a really sane and sound book. It is a very noticeable contrast with the kind of thinking that is so general everywhere here today. I wonder what hope there is of getting the country at large to see this point of view. The situation certainly seems to be very discouraging, from the point of view of peace.
