Title An Exchange of Letters on Monastic Questions / Br. M. Louis O.C.S.O. and Ronald Roloff O.S.B. / mimeograph Place Published: Privately printed at Gethsemani (Trappist, Kentucky)
Notes Mimeograph; text on recto and verso. This manuscript found as part of "School of Charity". This mimeograph is part of a larger set of mimeographs that was obtained from the convent of Saint Helena at Vails Gate, New York. One of the sister's there had met with Merton with a few others while she resided at a sister house at Versailles, Kentucky (this meeting was noted in "The School of Charity" on page 198 and in "Dancing in the Waters of Life - Journal #5" on page 40). From that meeting the convent was put on Merton's mailing list and received numerous mimeographs in the 1960s - some of which are housed in this collection. Some of the publication information of these mimeographs was obtained with the kind participation of Patricia Burton, noted Merton bibliographer.

Title An Introduction to the English Mystics / mimeograph Place Published: Trappist, KY
Notes Mimeograph; this item has been received with gratitude from E. Glenn Hinson, friend of Thomas Merton. It is one of numerous items received from Hinson including 13 mimeographs which he received directly from Thomas Merton in the 1960s. Included in this group are mimeographs by Merton of unpublished works such as Notes on Art and Worship, as well as conference essays such as Conferences on the Rule of St. Benedict, and a Choir Novitiate copy from 1959 of Selections on Prayer. This collection of items represent an important first look at what Merton was working on later in his life, representing his writing before publication. Perhaps in the order of 100 copies of each essay were mimeographed and distributed to friends and acquaintances.

Title An Introduction to the English Translation of the Shen Hui record / "The Ch'an of Shen Hui" / mimeograph Place Published: Trappist / The Abbey of Gethsemani
Notes This item is an early photoduplicated, lightly corrected, typescript - perhaps circulated in this format rather than as one of Merton's characteristic mimeographs because of its intended purpose. This item appears to have not been published. This mimeograph represents one of numerous mimeographs acquired from Bob Bonazzi, John Howard Griffin's literary executor - and Griffin's widow's then second husband - a few years after the main Griffin manuscript archive was purchased from them (which is now at Columbia). The mimeos and typescripts from this collection represent a separate transaction from the acquisition of the Griffin archive, as the items had either been sent to R. Bonazzi directly by Merton or his representatives, or perhaps they were duplicated items already in the Griffin archive. (William Reese Company - Rare Books and Manuscripts)
