1. 1965/09/14 TL[c] from Merton Thanks for sending me your article. It is a smasher and I really enjoyed it. I definitely think it does not recommend publication in Collectanea / recommends Ramparts or Critic / thoughts on being on editorial board of Collectanea «detailed view»
2. 1968/01/31 HLS to Merton I'm just curious to see whether letters get through to you now. In 1966 I wrote you asking for a peace protests / what monks should do instead of "sitting" around «detailed view»
3. 1968/02/14 TL[c] from Merton Yes, letters are finally getting through. Only problem now is answering them. I never heard a Dom James and censorship of monastic renewal / publication - [Hildebrand Cardinal] Antoniutti and Dom Ignace / role of monks in peace movement «detailed view»
4. 1968/08/26 HLS to Merton I have never thanked you for the two issues of Monks Pond. I haven't had time to read them commentary on Camus' Plague «detailed view»
5. undated/no/no (#01) TALS from Merton It is silly to bother you with this piece of absurd nonsense, but as I made you a sign about it, [see also "Censors Reports" file, Series 36, "New Seeds of Contemplation"] censors negative comments about Merton's interpretation of RenĂ© Descartes - censor compares Merton's ideas on Christian contemplation to Hindu contemplation, but Merton thinks the censor's own notion of contemplation more closely compares to a negative stereotype of Hindu mysticism «detailed view»
6. undated/no/no (#02) TL[c] from Merton It is silly to bother you with this piece of absurd nonsense, but as I made you a sign about it, [see also "Censors Reports" file, Series 36, "New Seeds of Contemplation" / carbon transferred from "Hart Working Files"] censors negative comments about Merton's interpretation of RenĂ© Descartes - censor compares Merton's ideas on Christian contemplation to Hindu contemplation, but Merton thinks the censor's own notion of contemplation more closely compares to a negative stereotype of Hindu mysticism «detailed view»
