QuotationFor about a year I have been giving conferences on Sufism here to the monks, based largely on books you sent me in the past. I have found Al-Hujwiri especially useful. I know another book of Dr. Nasr, but would be delighted some day to receive Ideals and Realities of Islam. I suppose the Suez problem affects us both, but I have a small paperback edition of the Cloud of Unknowing so I will send that air mail. I hope it reaches you safely soon.
