Sin,—With reference to the recent correspondence in your' columns on the future of Red Cross clinics, I think you will be interested to see the following letter from Sir Joseph Burn, general manager of the Prudential and actuary of the Pru- dential Approved Societies, in regard to the treatment of civilian patients in the Surrey Red Cross curative posts:— " PRUDENTIAL APPROVED SOCIETIES.

Holborn Bars, London, E.C. 1, 9th August, 1921.

DEAR MAnAm,—I have to acknowledge the receipt of your letter with reference to the work of your curative posts in Surrey. In connexion with our approved societies we have had the opportunity of assisting some of our members to obtain treatment at your posts, and so satisfactory have the results been that we shall be happy to continue to consider applications from our members who have been recommended by their medical adviser to seek treatment through your institutions.—Yours faithfully, (Signed) J. BURN, Actuary.

Mrs. St. Lee Strachey."

It is obvious that the extension by the Prudential of the benefits of massage and electrical treatment to panel Patients in approved cases is of great importance in regard to both the future of Red Cross clinics and the welfare of the civilian population.—I am, Sir, &c., (Signed) AMY SraAcHEY

(Chairman. Sub-Committee of Curative Posts, Surrey Branch, B.R.C.S.).
