Scope and content

Contains a letter from Knox to Donald Duffie dated 4 Jan 1942, thanking him for the Christmas card. Mentions paper shortage and that there is no news from his seminary. Knox says he is wondering when Donald will be The Reverend Duffie. Mentions not having met any of the Canadian forces in England during WW2, except “a few strangers in trains”. Expects to see his cousin John Knox coming to England as a chaplain for the forces. On giving a personal news, Knox tells Duffie that he lives “out of the world here, looking after a convent school when I’m not translating the Bible” and that he gets little news of Oxford friends though he has a fixture at Oxford coming up. Talks about overcrowded chapel despite the falling-off of male population (assumed to be due to war). Mentions that John Lochrane and Peter Morsen (Sp?) have been taken in as POWs and asks to pray for them.
