QuotationCorrespondence gets bigger all the time, and things one must answer right away, very often. For instance, this will please you, Dom Aelred Graham and I are now great friends, and I am glad. I reviewed his new book on Zen [Zen Catholicism], after first sending him a letter about it, and we agree thoroughly. He even invited me to come up and have a vacation and rest at Portsmouth Priory. Some chance I'd ever have of getting that permission. But I would really enjoy it. However I hope he may stop by here one day. I think we really look at things very much in the same way. The Zen book certainly showed it.
