Let­ter of the week Caught on the wrong side

Country Life Every Week - - Letters To The Editor -

Iwas sur­prised to no­tice in Tot­ter­ing (Novem­ber 9) that Dicky was walk­ing on the in­side of the pave­ment, leav­ing Daffy at the mercy of the traf­fic. As a boy, I was taught that a gen­tle­man walks on the out­side of a lady, to pro­tect her from splashes and so forth. In the past, it also kept one’s sword arm free.

I still stick to the rules, although when my lady wife darts across the road to greet a friend, ap­par­ently im­mune to ap­proach­ing traf­fic, dis­cre­tion comes be­fore val­our—in the course of self-preser­va­tion, you un­der­stand. Terry Read, Nor­folk

The writer of the let­ter of the week will win a bot­tle of Pol Roger Brut Réserve Cham­pagne
