Letters from readers

Morganatics Sir, During the past few months I have read in your correspondence columns two violent anti-Morgan tirades, both aptly headed "Oh dear," and after Mr Marsh' letter in your February issue, I feel I must dash into print on the subject.

The Choice of a Road-Race Course. There is Much to be Done Before a 131.(1 Race is Run. time to time one reads in the correspondence columns of the motoring press suggestions that it would be a good idea if someone could arrange a road-race on Salisbury Plain, or some other spot favoured by the writers, but many of the letters reveal a complete ignorance of the factors which have to be taken into...
