[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.] SIR,—In your issue of November 8th a reviewer of my book on Wolsey says that I " refuse for no adequate reason to agree with most unbiased writers in thinking that Henry wanted a son to succeed him." If your reviewer will turn to page 280 he will find the following words :— ". . . to have only a woman for the Tudor successor was a peril. . That Henry desired a male heir is obvious."
