[To THE EDITOR OP THE "SPECTATOR."] Sin,—Your correspondent, Mr. J. Ralph ( Spectator, March 28th) is, I think, a bad political casuist. He is going to vote Liberal next election, though a Conservative hitherto, because he dis- approves of "any alliance with Germany." The Teutonic races, from times before Waterloo, have fought on the same side against oppressors of Europe. Is it because the German Press from ignorance went Pro-Boer that he will join the Liberal side under its present leader, who, along with his devoted admirers, went Pro-Boer, though not from ignorance?
