QuotationAbout the Bolshakoff ms. [The Russian Mystics, later published by Cistercian Publications], only a few weeks ago I looked at it closely and saw I would have to revise it as the English is halting in places. This is quite a big job, and it took time for his letter to come back giving me permission, so I have only just begun. Consequently it will be a while before I forward the book to you. The material is really interesting and thorough; I think it will make an excellent book, if I can manage to make it more readable. I have not read the Italian version, but it seems quite good.
