DEAN Inge was delighted by an angry letter he had received from a lady who disagreed with one of his articles.
`I am praying nightly for your death,' she wrote. `It may interest you to know that in two other cases I have had great success.'
After his retirement from the Deanery he became a regular contributor to a London journal, and told us, with a chuckle, of the critical comment that he had ceased to be a pillar of the Church, and was now two columns of the Evening Standard.
From Alfred Noyes, Two Worlds for Memory (1953), p. 244.
