Tony Boyd was a seventh-grader writing from Ashland, Kentucky. He asked Merton for information about Kentucky music and facts. In Merton's reply, he expresses his appreciation for Kentucky, having spent half of his life in the state, and his fondness for country music and Johnny Cash (though Merton acknowledges that Cash is not from Kentucky). He writes also of Gethsemani Abbey, describing the buildings and their renovation, the Gregorian chant, and the work of the monks.
