Collection Description

Biographical Note

Scope and Content Note

This collection consists of an eight-page typewritten letter from Puller to Viscount Halifax in response to Halifax’s Further Considerations on Behalf of Reunion. The letter is dated 24 September 1923. In it, Puller challenges Halifax’s argument in support of “the jure divine character of the Roman Primacy of Jurisdiction.” Despite his disagreement with this argument, Puller retains a warm affection for Halifax, mentioning his “gratitude for many acts of friendliness and kindness” and praising Halifax’s “zeal for what seems to you to be Divinely revealed truth.”
