A LONDON BEE [To the Editor of THE SPECTATOR.]
SIR,—In answer to Sir William Beach Thomas's query " Where is the nearest hive to Charing Cross ? " I should hazard a guess that they are the two hives situated on the roof of Morley College, 61 Westminster Bridge Road.
The hives have been here for some years and have been used for demonstration purposes in an evening class on bee-keeping. The honey is excellent, and it is surmised that most of it comes from the lime trees in St. James's Park, Lambeth Palace, and, no doubt, the Embankment Gardens. I understand that the results obtained are better than those from hives belonging to the same owner outside the London area.—Yours faithfully, Morley College,
EVA M. HUBBACK, Principal.
