Silt—Derek Hudson is rather severe on Stephen Winsten's Shaw's Corner,

in spite of the author's frank admission that it is a series of memories and not reports. One cannot help wondering whether Johnson's comments on Boswell would not have been even more severe than Shaw's on Winsten.—Yours faithfully, ROBERT H. CORR1CK.
