[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.] SIR,—Had the name not been besmirched, Colonel Mildmay's plea for retention, and his reasons therefor, might be freely accepted. As it is, though, I hope it may be dropped ; because it will tend to perpetuate the memory of the most shameful act of treachery in British history.—I am, Sir, &c., R. H. FORMAN (Colonel).
