This is the 8th issue of LeTTers. The 12th issue will be the last. The magazine was initiated I½ years ago to give BCTTA members an opportunity to voice their opinions. However, although several letters have come from the USA, very few have been written by our own members –in fact only two entirely unsolicited letters have been received.
