From Mr Owen Wells

Sir: I was so moved by Catherine Wilkinson's letter that I went and looked at my chest of drawers. I found some discarded underwear in the bottom drawer that was on the verge of becoming very abject. I thought of resuscitating and re-animating it, but concluded that it would be kinder to leave it in its misery. I shut the drawer so that it might make its comment on the condition of art, in privacy, in the dark.

Yours sincerely,


Ilkley, West Yorkshire
