During his tenure at the C.P.S. camps, Burrows corresponded with conscientious objectors and others of like mind throughout the country. Correspondence dating to autumn of 1942, includes a letter from Allan W. Eister, a sociologist of religion, who mentions nutritional experimentation on conscientious objectors at Ward D-11, Welfare Hospital, New York City. Another letter from Eister, bearing no date, opposes the involvement of the Society of Friends in the C.P.S. movement. Lt. Nancy Jones, a nurse serving during World War II, wrote to Burrows on 29 Mar. 1943 to defend her own war service: "I took an oath once in which I pledged myself to take care of people who needed such care. It is not mine to question how they happen to need it, any more than I would refuse a treatment to a siphilitic on the grounds that he caught his disease through sinful living and did not deserve treatment." She recognized, however, that Burrows was destined to travel a "different road, a rougher one, but higher and closer to heaven," and hoped that one day everyone would "quit arguing over the nationality of Washington's cherry trees and see a Japanese as another man. Perhaps we will even forget the carpetbagger days and Sherman's march through Georgia, and Yankees, Southerners and Negroes will live as political and social equals, judged not by their color, but by how much they have on the ball."
