SIR,—May I correct a small but important error in :lay last letter? I 'noted Theodor Herzl's Diaries pro- posal that 'Arabs' be worked across the frontier. To be exact, this Herzl reference was to the 'native in- habitants' of his outline Jewish State. In his later draft Charter for Zionist 'colonisation of Palestine Ind Syria which he submitted to the Ottoman Sul- tanate, Article III was to give -Zionists the right to deport the native population—in other words, the Arabs (cf. Van der HoeVen Leonhard, The Truth About the Palestine Problem, The Hague. 1960).— Yours faithfully,
