From Mr Graham Hall.

Sir, I was surprised to read, in “Poor cultivation” (House & Home, November 23), that visitors on their way to Lenin’s tomb were passing through Waterlow Park in London.

Although Lenin had visited London when he was alive, he was last seen dead and embalmed in Moscow. Perhaps the author is confusing him with Karl Marx, buried in Highgate Cemetery.
