To the Mother Prioress of a Contemplative Order
Reverend Mother, 29 April 1960
I am very sorry indeed that the news about Victor White is so bad and the end apparently so near.
If you have any chance to let him know about myself I should be much obliged if you would tell him that I am at peace with him and that he should not worry any more.
I am quite convinced of his sincere and human loyalty.
I am sorry if I should have upset him by my attempt to explain to him the reason for a certain critique I had to make.
In my letter to him which contains the explanation, I also told him that it did not matter and he should not worry about it.
I don’t know what more I could tell him to reassure him of my feeling.
If I were young and could trust my physique I would certainly come over to England and reassure him of my personal feeling.
Unfortunately, however, extravagances are out of the question.
So I would be most obliged if you would kindly let him know of my letter to you.
He has sent his new book to me which I am going to read just now (having had to finish another book first).
I am very interested in it and it was my intention to write to him only after having gone through his book as carefully as possible.
I am afraid the reading will take some time.
Under these circumstances I would perhaps do better if I wrote to him soon.
