Sir: With regard to your article 'Sacred Egyptian relics said to lie under the Needle' (6 December), according to The Traveller's Guide from Death to Life, published about 1890 by the British Gospel Book Association and edited by Mrs Stephen Menzies, there was deposited in the pedestal of Cleopatra's Needle a jar containing four Bibles in different languages and John iii, 16 in 215 languages.

Yours sincerely,

GORDON NOTLEY
