Your persistent use of the designation “New” for “New College” is a disgraceful solecism worthy of an HM Bateman cartoon.

Perhaps you are too young to be aware of this time-honoured tradition, observed by Oxonians of every stripe. New College, please!

I also deplore the fact that you stuff a good deal of interesting material onto the internet — saving money perhaps, but forgetful of the fact that some older alumni do not use computers due to physical drawbacks of one kind of another – in my case, defective eyesight.

With best wishes for the magazine, Oxford Today.
