SIR,—Perhaps the following statement made by Professor Allison Peers in his book, The Tragedy of Spain, may help to convince Mr Raymond Binns that Senor Pablo de Azcarate's information is not strictly correct.

The Professor is describing the events in Spain before, according to the Spanish Ambassador in London, " the Govern.nent was deprived by the military rebellion of the necessary coercive means" and goes on as follows:

" Day after day, pages of the newspapers were filled with reports of strikes settled, new strikes declared, demonstrations, shooting casualties, violent scenes at funerals, riots, arson, destruction. . . . Meanwhile, the most disturbing feature of each day's news became no longer strikes and riots, but political assassinations. The complete impunity with which these were committed, despite the efforts, or, at least, the existence of detectives, police, Civil Guards, and Shock Police, was agonising."

B. ALLEN. Stockport.
