Sir: Your correspondent Jack Dominian in the context of a child getting ill on the day the parents are to go away for the weekend, writes (25 March) that the trip may have to be cancelled since 'there is no point in having a wife demented with anxiety: she is not going to be able to enjoy a quiet weekend with her husband'.

Quite. Fathers never worry about sick children; or, if they do, they do so manfully. Demented with anxiety at leaving a child with a temperature of 103? Never]

Yours faithfully,



26 March
