Press Letters

Introduction

 

This Introduction should be read in conjunction with FB’s article giving hints on writing letters to the press, including in particular The Times of London, which for nearly two centuries has been the national platform for citizens’ news and views, from hearing the first cuckoo in spring to telling the Prime Minister where he has gone wrong. For another similar writing on this website see the letter from the Boston Globe.


This website includes a chronological list of FB’s published and unpublished letters to The Times, starting in 1949. The text of a letter can be accessed by clicking on its title. The published letters were published on the main letters page of The Times, except for a few at the end. The letters prefaced ‘BN’ were published in The Times Business News. Those prefaced ‘D’ were published in the Debate section of The Times Register. Those prefaced ‘LR’ were published in the Lives Remembered section of The Times Register. The published letters are numbered chronologically, while unpublished letters are marked TLU. The footnotes give the date of publication of each letter and other relevant information, with links where appropriate.


Other letters to the press, both published and unpublished, can be accessed in a similar way to The Times letters. The numbering follows a similar pattern.
