pp 157 John Middleton Murry's Christocracy with an interesting religious letter from the author on Adelphi headed paper from 1947. In the letter to the critic and writer Malcolm Elwin, JMM mentions an enclosed 'essay' (not present) admitting that 'You may find it a queer approach to "the necessity of a personal religion" but it is the only one which has any real significance for me at the present time - certainly the only kind of "personal religion" in which I believe.' JMM goes on to suggest an alternative title which is very similar to the title of the book he published the following year, and signs the letter in full. Middleton Murry considered ordination in the 1930s and continued to write on religious subjects throughout his literary career. The book is very good; the jacket good.
