Memorial To Sir Robert Hunter.

[To The Editor.]

Sir,–Many friends and fellow-workers of the late Sir Robert Hunter, K.C.B., have felt that there should be some suitable memorial to commemorate his life of service to the nation, and a committee has therefore been formed to carry out the proposal.

The committee has determined to appeal for funds to obtain a permanent record of his public career, not only as the legal adviser to the Post Office for 30 years, but as a founder and Chairman of the National Trust for Places of Historic Interest or Natural Beauty, and an untiring worker for the Commons Presevation Society and other kindred organisations for the protection of open spaces and rights-of-way.
