[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.] SIR,—May I call the attention of practical idealists to a course of Sunday afternoon lectures on " Idealism in Commerce and Industry " to be given at the Guildhouse, Eccleston Square, this autumn ? Many people refuse to believe in idealism in business, doubtless without realizing that their own attitude helps to make idealism difficult or impossible. But there are people who believe that it is possible here and now, and others who believe that it will only become possible under changed conditions. We want to know more about this, and, consequently, among our speakers at the Guildhouse, there are men of such widely opposed views as Sir Robert Home, Sir Josiah Stamp, and Sir Herbert Blain, Mr. Robert Smillie and Mr. Coppock, Professor Soddy and Dr. Andrew Balfour. We are also asking the speakers to allow questions at the close of each address.—I am, Sir, &e., A. MAUDE RUMEN.
