ON THE ROOF SIR,—Your reviewer of Mr. Harrer's book Seven

Years in Tibet seems to have over- looked Reginald Fox when he stated that Mr. Harrer and his companibn had spent longer in Tibet than any other European.

Mr. Lowell Thomas in his book Out of This World writes of how, during his visit to Lhasa in 1949, he met Mr. Fox who had then lived in Tibet for fourteen years.—Yours faithfully, F. V. G. KINGDON 29 Sculthorpe Avenue, West Lynn, King's Lynn
