A READER in America has written a most encouraging letter taking us to task for having last November written an “apology” for the delays experienced in the arrival of copies of AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING. His theme was that there was no need for us to do so, since everyone, even on the other side of the Atlantic, understood our difficulties so well that no apology was necessary. This was taking a very kindly view, for which we were most grateful; particularly as contained with it was a renewal of his subscription and a warm appreciation of the value of the contents of the paper. We have replied to him by letter but would like to give him this further, more public, intimation of our gratitude for his thought in writing as he did. We wish everyone had the same degree of understanding and comprehension, for we suffer from others—sometimes much nearer home—who, writing from the remote fastnesses in the country to which they have removed themselves for the duration of the war, complain querulously if their copies of AIRCRAFT ENGINEERING do not arrive with the punctuality and precision which were its peacetime habits. We can only ask them to read their papers, from the cautious pages of which can be gathered by the intelligent reader an occasional hint that the main objective of the Luftwaffe in its nocturnal activities has been London, where our business is situated.
