QuotationFinished Abinger Harvest, embarrassed a little by the pageant but loved all the rest of it. Finished Isaias. Not finished-Daniel the Stylite. But turned him in anyway. Pussy's life of Dom Martène. [Note 17: Merton may well be referring to the biography of Benedictine Dom Edmond Martène by Joseph Daoust, Dom Martène, Un Geant de l'Erudition benedictine (Fontanelle, 1947) ] I'll keep at it. And I want to read this about Toumliline, too.
