QuotationToday two books arrived, beautifully bound: the Spiritual Anker and the Treatise on Discretion. Thanks very much indeed. I will read them and take good care of them and send them back safely. Meanwhile I have received others, some time ago, and I don't remember having acknowledged them. I am very ashamed of myself. What I received was Dame Margaret Gascoigne which is excellent, and I have noted some excerpts that could be used. These will come to you when I have also thought of others from the other mss. Then there is the Catholic Record Society material, as well as Dame Barbara Constable's Considerations for Priests. These are very good but as they are more of a compilation I do not think we can use them, do you?
