Notes:  Likely Forest's selection from Merton's translation of St. Clement's "Protreptikos". There is no separate manuscript among Merton papers, and this was copied from the Catholic Peace Fellowship papers at the University of Notre Dame Archives. There is a handwritten note by Forest, possibly another quote from the translated essay. "Soliders of Peace" as a separate item was first published in The Catholic Worker, January 1963, p. 8.
