THE BISHOP OF CARLISLE AND THE R.S.P.C.A. [To THE EDITOR
OF THE " BFBOTATORel Sat,—As one of the Committee for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals—a member also of the Victoria Street Society—and of 180 Brompton Road, I write to express my astonishment, and that of others, that any one "professing" love and good feeling for animals,—' refer to the Bishop of Carlisle,—should speak in favour of the "greatest of all cruelty," viz., Vivisection, at the annual meeting for prevention of cruelty to animals. His doing so was an anomaly and inconsistent. I hope the public will under- stand that the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals-105 Jermyn Street, W.—does not hold itself responsible for the Bishop of Carlisle's misplaced speeeh.—I am, Sir, &c.,
RENRY BETHUNE, Major.
