[TO THE EDITOR OF THE " SPECTATOR. " 1 Sut,—In Mr. W.
W. Jacobs's "The Skipper's Wooing" it is 'observed of Henry's mother that she "possessed a tongue -which was famed throughout Wapping, and obtained honour- able mention in distant Limehouse." If Henry's mother is still living, I fear that her reputation down Limehouse way mast now be totally eclipsed.—I am, Sir, &c,
