KIRKUS REVIEW

Bishop Kelley has ""strained his memories"" to good advantage, and his book will appeal to many. Backward looks of an alert Roman Catholic priest and bishop -- youthful experiences as ""assistant super cargo"" on one of his father's trading vessels, a visit to Prince Edward's Island, a college education for $165. Glimpses of the famous and near famous:- Cardinal Gibbons on vacation; Archbishop Ryan spins a merry quip; a priest plays the difficult game of humanity; the foundation of the Catholic Church Extension Society, etc. etc. This is a book for a wider market than the religious market for it is essentially a human document. But it should have a substantial sale in the religious book department.
