Preaching to Harry

This is a letter to Dad's brother Harry. I think it is the only one in the collection. Much of it it is about people i have not heard of. Near the end he talks a bit about going to church and 'meditation'. I'm not sure if this was meditation the way we see Buddhist meditation now, or if he meant silent Quaker meeting for worship. This letter is interesting to me since he mentions both going to an evangelical type church and also doing meditation. Though he says he is going to the church for the music, not the preacher. I am interested in how he moved from the church to the unprogrammed Friends Meeting. I like the line about 'not going to seed'.
