1. 1968/07/25 TLS to Merton I am reading your book, Conjectures of a Guilty Bystander, which I find both informative and C. S. Lewis and Merton / thesis topic - race relations - possibility of racial war or apartheid / could race war be carried out in the name of Christianity by white racists? «detailed view»
2. 1968/08/07 TL[c] from Merton Thanks for your kind letter. I am certainly happy to think that so sound a judge as C.S.Lewis found possibility of racial violence and apartheid police state - suggests writing to John Howard Griffin on this subject «detailed view»
