Letter: A tragic case

The Independent Online
Sir: I was most distressed to see in today's letters column (10 June) that the remarkable Peter Jay is, for reasons unexplained, now homeless and forced to reside at the Garrick Club, presumably sleeping on a camp bed in a corner of the members' bar. It is surely a tragedy that such a first-class mind should be brought so low. Can I suggest a readers' appeal to raise funds for a proper home for Mr Jay so that, when he sees fit to grace your correspondence columns, he is allowed the dignity of a real address, like the rest of us? It is the least Britain can do.
