Quotation"¦ I wanted to assure you that I knew the book edited by Walter Stein. At first I planned to use all of it in the anthology of essays I have been editing [Breakthrough to Peace], then we had to cut down "¦ so that in the end I have only one of Stein's essays left. But this book will contain much very interesting material, some of the best that has been done in this country "¦ If you have seen Fellowship, you will see that they did some rather intelligent cutting of "Red or Dead" and I will be happy if you do the same. I am glad you like it. Not everyone will. Yet it is only common sense.
