From Mr Donald Foreman

Sir: Mrs M. J. Fox (Letters, 1 February) seems to suggest that because during the reign of Henry VIII monasteries were suppressed, the Prince of Wales's call for lottery money to be spent on religious buildings should be seen as some form of atonement. If so, perhaps descendants of the Cromwell family would like to give their support to the restoration of the cathedrals, churches and castles which suffered damage, even destruction, during Britain's mercifully brief experiment with republicanism.

Yours faithfully,

Donald Foreman
