Milk-and-Watery

C.S. Lewis, in a letter (3/22/55; Letters, 3:172):

Dear Miss Mathews,

I was glad to get your letter. I seem to be as ignorant of America as you are of India. I had no idea your parsons preached Hell-fire: indeed I thought the ordinary presentation of Christianity with you was quite as milk-and-watery as with us, if not more so. We could do with a bit more Hell fire over here.
