SIR,—I have a deep respect for Mr. Jack Schwab; and

enjoyed, by and large, his review of Miss Rowena Farre's Seal Morning. But, Sir, how can he write of 'the . . . innate laziness of the born Highlander'?

We have, since the second eighteenth-century rising, worked like galley slaves : and there is before that time, I submit, no evidence on which to found a judgement.—Yours faithfully,
