Editor, The Times:
I noted this month (May) the passing of Mr. Roy Cragg. A fine gentleman and fellow scribbler, we were seldom on the same side of an issue but, as they say, where everyone thinks alike, nobody thinks very much. I enjoyed his crusty humour and sharp mind. His opinions will be sadly missed by the Times’ readers. The village idiot, he described himself, but he was anything but an idiot.
Mr. Cragg, wherever you are, I am sure that you will continue to express your views and stimulate thought.
