QuotationYears ago you recommended that I get to know Newman, and I did not see your point. I certainly do now, not that I can compare my griefs with his in this matter of censorship. Have you read a very interesting book, From Bossuet to Newman by Owen Chadwick? It is excellent and you would like it. (Cambridge Press"”you ought to review it for Monastic Studies, Berryville, and thus save the trouble and expense of buying a copy.) Another thing you would immensely enjoy is David Knowles' biographical memoir of Dom Cuthbert Butler. It is in Knowles' new book, The Historian and Character (again Cambridge Press). This book by the way gives a curriculum vitae of Knowles and helps to clear away some of the misgivings people have. It also has some good essays on Cistercian topics.
