From Mrs. G. M. Stewart.
SIR,-My attention has been directed to an article in your current issue dealing with records broken by me on the Derby Special at Montlhery this year.
While I greatly appreciate the extremely nice things which it contains I trust that you will nevertheless be good enough to correct in your next issue the few errors which have managed to find their way into your otherwise excellent notice.
In the first place the car is not a Miller at all, not even an adapted one, the original Miller and all its spares having perished in the fire at Montlhery last year. Admittedly certain features of the design of the Miller have been incorporated in the Derby Special but that is as far as it goes, and the present car was entirely built by the Automobiles Derby in their Courbevoie factory, Mr. W. D. Hawkes being the managing director of the firm.
Secondly Mr. E. A. D. Eldridge has had absolutely no connection whatsoever with either the Firm of Automobiles Derby or my racing Derby Special, neither is he in any way responsible for the performances of the car which are duly solely to the brilliance of Mr. W. D. Hawkes. I have never, throughout my career, been at any time associated with Mr. E. A. D. Eldridge.
Mrs. G. M. ST F,WART. Paris.
