Sir: May I congratulate you on giving such publicity to

David Holbrook's admirable article (January 15). All honour to those who stand for Right-thinking, as opposed to the loud-mouthed purveyors of garbage in theatre and press.

It is to be hoped that other papers will follow your lead. I believe that most of the country is sick and tired of the nasty plays, films and novels which are foisted off on uS by a small minority.
