1. 1967/12/17 HLS to Merton Having some idea of what your mail may be like I thank you if you are even beginning to read this N.C.R. article "Crisis in Monasticism Hits American Trappists" / asks how Merton reacts to claim that contemplative orders have failed «detailed view»
2. 1967/12/23 TL[c] from Merton Just a quick response. Colman McCarthy's article was extremely slanted, I thought, and I got thought his words got slanted / states some problems with Trappist life but thinks some true contemplatives are produced and McCarthy was off base «detailed view»
