QuotationI have very much enjoyed the Tao of Painting [note 191: Mai-mai Sze, The Tao of Painting, 2nd ed. (New York: Pantheon, 1963), which Merton borrowed on his June 6 visit.], which I will send back soon. Duveen is priceless. But I am afraid it has almost fallen apart. Could I borrow your copy of Eric Gill on Clothes? [note 192: Erik Gill, Clothes: An Essay upon the Nature and Significance of the Natural and Artificial Integuments Worn by Men and Women (London: J.Cape, 1931). For Merton's negative comments on this work see his journal entry for Oktober 13, 1965.] Carolyn, I have here a copy of Giles "Confucianism and its rivals" which you sent me. I have never been clear if this was a loan or an extra that you wanted to get rid of. Could you please let me know?
