John Murray on manmade holy days

"Here I am alone in the library and apparently everyone has gone from Machen Hall until Friday morning. Now it is 9:30 p.m. on Wednesday. You may think this dismal. Well, I love it. It is a delightful change from the usual stir. I have had two good days in the Library. Monday was taken up with committee meetings, forenoon and afternoon. I hope to be here all day tomorrow. I have not even accepted a dinner engagement for what they call ‘Christmas.’ I hate the whole business." — 𝐉𝐨𝐡𝐧 𝐌𝐮𝐫𝐫𝐚𝐲, December 1958 Letter in 𝐶𝑜𝑙𝑙𝑒𝑐𝑡𝑒𝑑 𝑊𝑟𝑖𝑡𝑖𝑛𝑔𝑠, Vol. 3, p. 120
