Sir,—A poster advertising the forthcoming visit of the internationally renowned organist Kenneth Goodman, placed last week on the music notice-board, was removed, and replaced by one of your revolting, obscene and scurvy yellow posters.
While it is perhaps natural for a minor organ to attempt the subversion of a large one, it is in exceedingly bad taste, and is, furthermore, pusillanimity of the most insidious kind.
In pursuing such a campaign of intolerance against good music, you do not represent the vox humana. In fact you are treading a base cleft, and are on the brink of a bottomless abyss. In the memorable words of Roget: "pish! tush! tut! pshaw! pooh! fudge! bosh! humbug!"
We warn you sir, you must face the music, it will be piping hot, and we will call the tune!
You cannot keep a goodman down.—We are, etc.
