9 ENCOURAGEMENT TO ROMANISM. TO THE EDITOR. Sir,—The letter written by "Cestrian" in your paper of the 10th inst. deserves a reply, however brief, a6 it is both misleading and also singularly one-sided in ita views. I was present when the Lord Bishop of Cheater preached against Mariolatry, and I feel sure that he never for a moment included the the "Ancient, and Modern" hymns, a book universally u6ed by the Church of England, not only in our own Cathedral and, with the ex- ception of two, in all our city churches, but also throughout the country. Referring to the letter in question, I have travelled in many countries and have many friends, both Romanists and Anglicans, and I have never known the Virgin Mary to be placed in preference to the blessed Saviour," to quote "Cestrian's" words. Undoubtedly often next to, but never before. With reference to the picture in the "Graphic," I think the word "grovelling" used by "Cestrian" exceedingly bad taste. There isetill such a thing as reverence, even though he may not be aware of the fact, and to see the man, woman, or child kneeling at a wayside shrine, or crucifix, ae I have seen them so often, is surely a far better thing than to see the noisy crowds in our city streets each evening and to hear the language that makes one's ears tingle in so-called Protestant England. Lastly, I do not blame Romanists or Catholics for not attending a Coronation service, when part of tlw, Coronation oath contains what must be surely an insult to their religion, denying as it does all that they hold most sacred, and I am oertain that nobody would feel better pleased than our good King Edward were this part of the oath omitted, giving offence, as it surely must do, to millions of his subjects.—Yours truly. CHAS. ED CATTLEY. Stillington, Hoole-road, Chester, Aug. 13, 1907.
