[To the Editor of THE SPECTATOR.] SIR,—Bishop Carey's principle of

self-control appears to involve abstinence unless a child is wanted or there is at' least the possibility of having one. It would be interesting • to know what line of conduct the Bishop enjoins when for physiological or pathological reasons conception has ceased to be possible.—I am, Sir, &c., W. A. BREND. 14 Bolingbroke Grove, S.W. 11.
