Wendell Berry's Correspondence with Thomas Merton

I just came upon this page from The Thomas Merton Center at Bellarmine University. The site describes the collection of Berry-Merton letters.

This set of correspondence contains nine letters between two like-minded poets and authors. In his correspondence with Berry, one can see seeds of Merton's interest in the environment. One can only guess at the directions in this vein that his friendship with Berry might have led him. Among the letters are original typed and handwritten letters by Berry, and carbon copies of Merton's letters.

The letters themselves are not available online, but substantial descriptions of each item are provided.
