From Mr Robert J. W. Poole

Sir: How I empathise with Martin Castle (Letters, 11 August). Married to a newly ordained priest, I am now frequently introduced as the curate's husband: and as a 58-year-old man running my own full-time business, it seems very odd, so late in life, to be asked how my rock cakes and cucumber sandwiches are coming along.

Yours bemusedly,

Robert J. W. Poole

Penzance, Cornwall

11 August
