[To the Editor of THE SPECTATOR.] SIR, —It was doubtless a

slip of the pen which made your reviewer, Mr. Hamish Miles, speak of Miss Yonge's "im- peccably Broad Church outlook," but, all the same, the accusation is enough to make the poor dear lady turn in her gravel

She was a devoted friend and follower of Keble, and, like all the Tractarians, she regarded the Broad Church party with the utmost horror. It was the rising tide of High Church enthusiasm all through her most active writing years, as well as her really admirable power of creating living characters (within the limits of her range), which carried her into such

immense popularity.—Yours truly, as= Dow. 26 Temple Fortune Lane, N.W. xi.
