Sir: Like many of your readers I have been deeply affected by the death of John Smith. I feel as if all hope for a just and unalienated Britain has died with him. But, like Mr Smith, I am a Christian socialist so I must believe in resurrection. I hope and pray that the Labour Party will now conduct itself in such a way that allows that resurrection to happen. I for one could not bear to see my hopes re-entombed by the internal strife and disunity which John Smith managed to transcend.

Yours faithfully,
