THE KING'S SPEECH.

TO THE EDITOR OF THE HERALD.

Sir, --In answer to a letter that appeared in your paper, dated December 14, 1936, headed the "King's Speech," we wish to inform the secretary of the Stammerers' Club of a few facts concerning Mr. Lionel Logue, of Harley street, formerly of South Australia, and of his undoubted successful treatment of his Majesty King George VI., then the Duke of

York.

During a visit to London in 1935 and 1936, we were the privileged guests of Mr. and Mrs. Logue in their private home at Syden- ham Hill, and are therefore in the position to prove to your correspondent that without a doubt Mr. Logue did cure his Majesty of his stammering, after all other specialists had

failed.

In vindication of this statement we have read letters, personally written by his Majesty, to Mr. Logue, in which he gratefully thanked him for the success of his treatment. This was effected just prior to the Royal visit to Australia of the Duke and Duchess of York in May, 1927, and greatly contributed to the

success of their tour.

Much credit is given to her Majesty Queen Elizabeth, who during the entire trip, un- tiringly carried out instructions, personally given her by Mr. Logue.

Your correspondent writes that he has heard of at least "four other gentlemen" who claim to have "cured the Duke of stammering." Can he, or any of these four gentlemen, produce similar evidence of the success of their treat-

ment:

We are, etc.,

ESTHER MOSES.

EILEEN M. FOLEY.

Bondi, Dec. 20.
