QuotationEtta Gullick-along with wonderful letters from the Adriatic, for she was at Istanbul to see the Patriarch and at Patmos also-sent Watkin's book Poets and Mystics. She wants me to read especially the Essay on [Augustine] Baker. I have begun instead with Julian of Norwich, because all this year I have been more and more attracted to her. Now the immense wonder of her is opening up fully. The doctrine on sin. The parable of the servant. Tremendous! How great a joy and gift!
