HOW TO TREAT FRANCO SIR, It is with the greatest

satisfaction that I have read in The Spectator of September 24th an article I have hoped to find week by week for the last three years: How to Treat Franco. " The present absurd policy of the democracies " ought surely to be altered at once, before it is too late, however much our present Government may dislike Franco. Common sense must dictate a sensible treatment of the country which ought to be drawn into the Western Union without delay.—Yours faithfully,
