SIR, —In reply to Miss Lloyd-Baker's argument that it is not

'reasonable to expect Churchmen of learning, intelligence and personality to assume office in the Church' unless they can aspire to the 'material re- wards' of a bishopric, may I say that during nearly forty years in thri ministry of the Church of England

I have not met a man who seemed to me to have cherished such motives when he was ordained.
