Sale of C.T.S. Booklets
Why could not some energetic Catholics sell C.T.S. booklets at the curbside of our streets in the same way that Judge Rutherford's missionaries sell their books at the curbside, in some of our English and Scottish cities ?-B. M.

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking the hundreds of readers of THE CATHOLIC HERALD who have so generously helped our work of relief for German refugees, by sending gifts of parcels. If any of those who have been so generous in the past feel they would like to continue helping this work, would they please send future parcels addressed to: K.R.O. (Stadt Kreis), 576 C.C.G., B.A.O.R., 13, and mark them clearly " German Relief." -(MRS.) R. W. KELLY, 576 C.C.G., B.A.O.R., 13.
My wife and I have been much interested in the correspondence in your columns on parish history. Feeling that the importance of continuing Catholic tradition had not been sufficiently emphasised in the past, we began some Months ago to compile a complete Guide to Catholic London, including in concise form the medieval and modern history of each parish and district. So far as we are aware, no book on just these lines has yet been published. We have submitted specimen chapters to two leading Catholic publishers, only to be told that, while they have no fault to find with our work, they feel " unjustified at the present time " in taking the risk of publishing it. These unexpected results have made us wonder how strong is the interest of the modern Catholic in the Church's tradition in England.-J. P. DERRIMAN, 36 Campden Hill Gardens, London, W.8.
