QuotationEd Rice asked me to write an article on Fr. Pascal Bourgoint for Jubilee. I said I might be able to do this later. Can you tell me where I can get the necessary information on his early life and conversion besides of course Les enfants terribles? I can write to Africa for his last years. If you get a chance to set down a few words on him, I would appreciate it. But no hurry, you have your own work to do and that is much more important. Perhaps there may be an article on him in France somewhere, too? If so, please be sure that I get a copy, and I will be most grateful.
