[To the Editor of THE SPECTATOR.]
certainly gathered from the letter of the two doctors that Herr Ossietzky was still in captivity. Nevertheless, I am still convinced that it is undesirable for foreigners to take any action that may be regarded by other nations as interfering in their business or taking sides in their domestic controversies. I rather wonder if the "distinguished foreign friends" would have so publicly sent their good wishes, if no political con- siderations or sympathies had been involved.—Your obedient servant,
