Take a letter

Just added to Letters to the Editor are eight more letters, published between 1903-30. I hope you’ll find all of them of interest; to modern eyes some are eyebrow raising, if not face palming. As an example: “I regret to see that you are advocating, or rather countenancing, the adoption of motor bicycle driving by ladies. To my mind, woman was never made for an engine driver, and has not that cool nerve required so often in motoring…” The correspondent continues at some length and women riders weren’t slow to reply. And there’s a latter from an individual claiming to be the heaviest rider in England.
