[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.]

Sra,—I have to thank Mr. J. M. Godlee for his somewhat whimsical reply to my letter. He has never seen a first-class colour photograph evidently. His suggested colour scheme is certainly an improvement on that of Mr. Stanley Casson, but I fail to see how colour, which can be so easily changed for a few pounds, can be more important than proportion, com- position, skyline and fenestration. These are permanent factors, while the colour could be changed with the seasons or left till it became a dull neutral.—I am, Sir, &c.,
