The prebendal look

From Prebendary John Gaskell
Sir, - I write to thank you for Glyn Paflin's review of the Revd Dr Malcolm Johnson's Diary of a Gay Priest: The tightrope walker (Books, 18 October), and for two generous pages of quotations from the book (Features, same issue).

But Mr Paflin is mistaken in describing Dr Johnson as "Prebendary". That he is not. The photograph, however, suggests that he looks like one.

I write as an "Emeritus".
