Sir: May I express my warmest appreciation of Nicholas Frayling's courageous letter (29 March) about the English-Irish relationship. Many rightly express horror at the cost of recent tragedies, but few go to the heart of the matter as Canon Frayling does.

As one who is part of the Protestant 'ascendancy', I have had much to learn about my own responsibility for past hurts and present hates, both on the Protestant-Catholic issue and on class division within our own Protestant community. Canon Frayling's honesty and openness help us all.

Yours sincerely,
