[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.] Sin,—The answer to your first question in "General Know- ledge Questions," published in the Spectator of January 7th, caused some surprise. On referring to Whitaker, there are 4,754,079 Christians in India, as against 8,238,803 Sikhs. And, if Burma be included, there are 11,571,268 Buddhists. Consequently the Sikh religion, if Whitaker is correct, would seem to rank fifth and not third among the religions of India. - -I am, Sir, &c., JOHN A. C. FINDLAY.
