SIR,—Delegates to the Spanish trades union congress in Madrid heard General Franco deny dictatorship and affirm that 'we love liberty more than any other nation.' Will the Caudillo prove the truth of his words by restoring religious liberty and reviewing the case of Genero Redrero? This young Protestant soldier begged to be excused from kneeling at mass. Each time permission was refused, On the third occasion Redrero's conscience simply would not lee him kneel. He was sentenced to thirty months' imprisonment.
