Eliot was one of several conservative Anglicans to argue against such a union. In January 1943 (ten months before this pamphlet was published), he was one of a deputation to the Archbishop of Canterbury, William Temple, to discuss the matter. (Temple was a supporter of the scheme, and published a reply to Eliot's pamphlet in 1944).
