SIR,-1 was fascinated by Cyril Ray's revelation about Erwin, Wasey,

Ruthrauff and Ryan Ltd 's offer of colour photographs of new potatoes for your June number. They have been bombarding me with information about potatoes as well as recipes and photographs (they have even come by registered post) for the past three years. They also keep me informed about New Zealand lamb and other kinds of food which I forget. Since I write mostly about theology and have never written a cookery column this has always struck me as odd.
