[To the Editor of the SPECTATOR.] Sia,—In the article on " Divorce " in the, Spectator of the 29th ult. occurs this sentence " Marriage, the Church tells us, is a sacrament." If the writer refers to the Church of Rome she is undoubtedly right ; on the other hand, if by the word Church she is (as most people would assume) alluding to the Church of England, she is equally certainly wrong. Both the Church Catechism and the Thirty-nine Articles state positively that there are only two sacraments, and, as the Twenty-fifth Article points out, marriage is not one of them.—I am, Sir, &c., H. J. Casmmeorr. 2 Willow Mansions, N.W. 6.
