[To THE EDITOR OF THE "SPECTATOR."] SIB,—In the Spectator of

February 11th there is a most interesting letter from Mr. P. E. Roberts, in which he quotes the wonderful forecast of Sir William Molesworth, so far back as 1851, as regards the future action of our Colonies in the event of the Mother-country being at war. Mr. Roberts, and all those who wish to perpetuate the memory of Molesworth, will be pleased to learn that a movement has been started in Cornwall to erect a memorial to his memory. A Committee has been formed at Wadebridge, where he made his first political speech, and some of the leading gentlemen of the neighbourhood have joined it. An account has been opened at the Consolidated Bank, to which subscriptions can be for- warded to the credit of the " Molesworth Memorial Fund."— I am, Sir, &c., Wm. Lucy, Secretary.
