SIR,—In an article in your issue of May 13th it is implied that there is no use for old postage-stamps. I beg to quote the following from a Girls' Friendly Society paper :—

" Those associates and members (G.F.S.) who have helped the Diocesan Sick Fund by collecting stamps, both English and foreign, will be glad to hear that twelve sick members have been sent to G.F.S. lodges at the seaside, with the money brought in by the stamps this year. Three went to Ramsgate, two to St. Leonards, five to Brighton, and two to Shanklin."
