Divorce and Separation

The Times (12 september 1917)


Sir, — I fear there is no pleasing Professor Whitney. If he says that "we have the least liberal divorce laws in the world" is not a fair and accurate paraphrase of "all Christian nations, including our fellow-subjects in Scotland, are more liberal than ourselves in dealing with this subject," then he and I talk a different language, and discussion is impossible. Naturally the word "Christian" is omitted from the first, as the whole question is concerned with Christian spirit and tradition.

Yours faithfully,

Windlesham, Crowborough, Sussex, Sept. 10.
