GERMANY'S "PLACE IN THE SUN."
[To THE EDITOR Or THE "SPECTATOR."]
Suz,—I have always been under the impression that this phrase was suggested by the celebrated answer attributed to Diogenes the Cynic, who, when asked by Alexander the Great whether he could oblige him in any way, replied, " Yes, you can stand out of my sunshine." If I am right, the phrase is not original either in the case of Pascal or Rousseau.—I am, Sir, Ste., V. 73B S. FOWKE. New University Club, St. James's Street, S.W.
