MR. II. W. NEVINSON
[To the Editor of TILE SPECTATOR.] SIR,—Fifty years have passed since H. W. Nevinson began his literary career by writing his first book, a scholarly study of Herder. Through this half-century of incessant work and adventure he has endeared himself to countless friends and readers, who loved the knight errant and admired the literary craftsman. Often in pain and at the risk of life,- in tropical jungles and on the field of battle he has served Bic enslaved and the oppressed. Seldom have gifts so rare been used with such disinterestedness on behalf of those who could. not speak their thanks. We believe that many will wish to join us in expressing our gratitude and our regard at a luncheon which it is proposed to hold in his honour on Friday, June 30th, at the Criferkm Restaurant, Piccadilly Circus. Tickets, price 4s. ad., may be obtained from Al iss Neal, Walter House, 52 Bedford Street, Strand, WC. 2. - We are, Sir, &c., NORMAN ANGELL, Noll MA X BEN TW ICI I, II. N.
