On “Commentary”

To the Editor:

From time to time I have tried to sow the seed of interest in your review, where the soil seemed receptive, but I constantly meet the reply that there are so many different publications on religious matters that one can’t read them all; in fact, this “can’t read them all” seems to be the sales resistance in all cases. I take it as sincere, because I, myself, had expected COMMENTARY to be just another one of those things—that it would be dry as dust. . . . and with more than a soupçon of bitterness.

I am very happy to state, enthusiastically, that your magazine has given me a year’s pleasure and information. The format expresses care, but especially the diversity of theme, the lack of bitterness, the freedom of expression, and the intermixture of jolly stories, are worthy of highest commendation. . . . Some issues I read from cover to cover, and there is no issue that does not offer me at least three articles of genuine interest.
