Sir: I sincerely hope Matthew Hoffman's thesis is not correct ('President Branson? It's possible', 19 October). I support the monarchy because, on enthronement, it is affirmed that the ultimate power in this world is almighty God.

At least 25 per cent of the population is strongly of the Christian belief and when we pray, 'Thy will be done', we absolutely mean it, and further believe it is God's will and God's will alone by which mankind can solve its problems. We further believe no society can have stability and good purpose unless it is based on God's will.

Yours faithfully, G. T. BROWN Kingston upon Thames, Surrey 19 October
