Another letter of Philip Berrigan from prison to his brother, Daniel.
Dear Dan -
Still a little punchy after
breakfast, but will try to get down
a few coherent thoughts for you.
Yesterday, the gang showed up in
force - OConnor, Pappas, Whitman, the
Walshes, many Lewises, Pat Rusk from
the Catholic Worker, etc. Had a solid
two hr. go-at-it with all of them,
and it seemed to charge up every one.
Dave Eberhardt also appeared - I
was happy to see him cheerful and
pretty much with it, having gotten
reports that he was finding these
months quite difficult. He says that
he knows nothing of the appeal, and
whether it is being pursued at all.
Fred seems to avoid us quite
totally. (I may have to take that
back, since there is today and
however long we have here). But
there has been no word, and I sus-
pect that seeing the show in other
hands has quite undone him.
Buchman should be around today,
and well see if its possible to
slip him gracefully or ungracefully,
