1 - 2 1 1967 Invitation to the ordination to the priesthood of Merton's friend and former professor, Daniel Walsh. «Your are cordially invited to assist at the Ordination to the Priesthood of Daniel Clark Walsh»
1 - 2 2 undated This contains a daily schedule titled "A Vocation to Silence", likely by Thomas Merton though not signed or so designated. It is similar to others in schedule to others at Gethsemani and his own schedules elsewhere (see "Schedule of Fr. M. Louis. Ca. 1950" and "Personal schedule (Fr. Louis) for hermitage, 1965; and Daily schedule (1943-1949)" in Sub-section E.1). It could be for himself, a description sent to someone else of his day, or something for use by the novices. However, it differs from others in two humorous sections on the page, one describing the routine of life in an igloo and one of "office rules" for the "Mt. Cory (N.Y.) Carriage and Wagon Works". «There is the fine art of arranging all your things in such a way that every one is within reach»
1 - 2 3 1975 Homily delived by Fr. Flavian Burns, O.C.S.O., at the funeral of Merton's friend Fr. Daniel Walsh; and funeral liturgy program. «FUNERAL LITURGY Reverend Daniel C. Walsh Cathedral of the Assumption August 30, 1975»
1 - 2 4 1968 Homily delived by Fr. Daniel Walsh at the funeral of Thomas Merton. «HOMILY for The Funderal Mass of Father Louis Merton, o.c.s.o. December 17, 1968 by Rev. Daniel C.»
