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.
