QuotationNow that I go to answer your letter I find that I have misplaced it, but I think most of the points are in my mind. But first of all thanks very much indeed for the two books. Of course I like [Thomas] Traherne very much; I have the Centuries. I will try to find a copy of an essay I did on the English mystics and send it along. I have asked someone to send more copies of the ones you asked for, and you ought to have them by now. The book by Fingarette looks particularly interesting. I am just getting into it and I can see that it will be stimulating and probably very helpful to me.
