[To the Editor of THE SPECTATOR.] SM,—I am breaking our general rule by writing to you to protest against a review by Mr. Evelyn Waugh of our publica- tion White, :Brown and Black, which appeared in your issue of July 26th. The wording of the first sentence we find, extremely offensive, while not denying a reviewer the right to think and call any book he dislikes a bad one.----Yours.
