Sir: I read Robert Fisk's article on the Crusaders (1 August) in which he refers to me as having visited him a few months ago. I rang Fisk on Friday 21 April 1995 (16 months ago) and announced to him the appearance of my booklet A Message to His Holiness the Pope and wanted him to cover it. Later in the day a Lebanese friend of Fisk visited me and got the booklet. While this clarification is marginal to the good article Fisk wrote, yet it is necessary to put it down.
