      Kim here - and this is my first post to this group after lurking a
      while, so, please bear with me!

      I have an old, ratty paperback version of Screwtape - which was the
      first of CS Lewis's works I read as a child after finishing Narnia -
      and the quote is in the 29th letter. I checked my new version of his
      signature classices, and it's in the 29th letter there, as well. I
      can't imagine any version changing the numbering.

      And, no matter which side you're on in the war debate - isn't this a
      great quote to use? It's always encouraging to me when
      contemporaries seek wisdom from great thinkers and writers.
