28 MAY 1948, Page 16


StR,—In view of your editorial remarks that Marshal Stalin's letter "appears not to have been published," I would point out that it was published by Tass, but for some reason was not regarded by the editors of our newspapers as worth reporting. It appeared in full, however, in the Soviet News of Friday, May 14th, of which I imagine you are in receipt. It was also "revealed" by Mr. Henry Wallace himself at a rally in Madison Square Garden, New York, on May 11th, vide a report in the News Chronicle of May 18th, in which extracts from it were quoted, and was quoted in a leading article in The Times of May 19th.—Yours 28 Gloucester Place, London, W.r. Commander, R.N.
