[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.]

Sin,—It is more than interesting, it is really illuminating, to find that the scheme of " Your Contributor " for the division of Kenya into two separate States (one of them very largely made up of various isolated patches), is based entirely on a series of articles that appeared in a Nairobi newspaper some years ago—written by a gentleman who at that time had very little experience of East Africa. I sus- pected as much.

It was not for my own information that I asked " Your Contributor" to outline his scheme in the pages of your influential journal. I did so for the purpose of having it submitted to the critical examination of your readers, and I urge that it is only right he should do so, seeing that he is carrying on the propaganda in its favour.—I am, Sir, &c., W. MACLELLAN WILSON. East African (Kenya and Tanganyika) Delegation, 54 Victoria Street, London, S.W. 1.
