[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.]

Sin,—The correspondence started by " A Layman " in your columns on the anti-Christian treatment of 'the innocent divorced person testifies to a widely and deeply felt indignation against the Pharisaism of Churchmen. Indeed, it is not too much to say that one considerable factor in the alienation of the thoughtful laity is to be found in the conclusion, they have had forced on them, that considerations other than religious are animating the clergy in their inhumane treatment of marriage in general, and of the innocent party in particular. Those who hold that the time is ripe for a movement to a more Christian practice should support the Divorce Law Reform Union, whose address is 55 Chancery Lane, W.C. 2.

Within Bishopsgate, B.C. 2.
