SIR,—In your issue of June 4th last you published a letter from Miss C. Cochrane drawing attention to the virtues of Thompson's steam-destroyer copper. On the strength of that letter I ordered one of these coppers for a new cottage which I was then building. I now find that it does all that was claimed for it, and my gardener and his wife are delighted with it. It is also economical in fuel. I venture to send you this letter as you take such an interest in cottage building and planning, and a, good thing like this ought to be widely known. The address is H. Thompson, 1 Stainton Road,

Endcliffe, Sheffield.—I am, Sir, &c., W. CiLiwcm. Orchards, near Godalming.

[A copper which does not fill the house with soapy steam on washing-day is in a small cottage a matter of very great importance. We are very glad to have Sir William Chance's evidence that the type of copper advocated by Miss Cochrane is so successful when put to the test of use.—En. Spectator.]
