From Mr Roger Scowen

Sir: Miles Kington is wrong in attributing 'politically incorrect' views in A school history of England to Rudyard Kipling ('Rudyard Kipling still has them laughing in Edinburgh', 23 August). The book had two authors: C. R. L. Fletcher and Kipling. The former wrote the main text which included all the extracts quoted in the article, and Kipling supplied simple but effective poems to highlight various points.

Yours sincerely,
