Sut,—If any of your readers have had the good fortune to be members of a W.E.A. dais you will no doubt have a spate of letters refuting the charges contained in the letter signed "Ex-W.E.A." We have this year for the first time become members and attended a course of lectures entitled France and Germany. The lectures were given by an eminent historian. The lecturer travels from Cambridge, a distance of forty miles, in all weathers. He has never been known to fail to arrive on time. The members of the class are equally regular in their attendance, snow or ice or rain never deterring them.

We have no doubt that our experience of the value of these lectures could be repeated all over the country.

Alford, Lincs.
