l GEOFFREY Lean (2 February) is not entirely correct to attribute Margaret Thatcher's short-lived green conversion to a paper sent to her by Sir Crispin Tickell. Her "conversion" had a lot more to do with the 1989 Euro- elections where the Greens got 9 per cent (in Scotland) and 15 per cent (in England and Wales) of votes cast.
l MAY I be allowed to make a slight correction regarding Robert Butler's comment about Eric Sykes's debut in the West End, in School for Wives ("Opening this week", Real Life, 2 February).
I seem to remember seeing him some years ago in the West End in Run for your Wife.

l THE hill figure in Train Landscape by Eric Ravilous ("The 100 best paintings in Britain?", Review, 2 February) is the Westbury White Horse, not, as stated, a South Downs figure. Ravilous painted another version of the horse and train from a hill-top viewpoint in the same year, 1939.
