To the Editor:

I am glad as a non-Jewish reader to express to you the great satisfaction I take in reading the pages of COMMENTARY. There is not an issue in which I do not find one and generally at least two articles of the most genuinely stimulating sort.

The word “liberal” means so many things that it may not signify much to say that I find COMMENTARY the most rewarding of all the liberal journals I see. What distinguishes it to my mind is its breadth and the kind of balance that comes only from views free from clichés, partis pris, and the declamatory writing that organs of all stripes seem to favor today. There is a sanity about most of the articles in COMMENTARY that comes only from the intellectual and moral soundness of maturity which makes preaching unnecessary.
