SUGGESTIONS have reached us from High Places that our normally sagacious and circumspect Editor has been the victim of a gross imposture. It has been insinuated that our correspondent Archdeacon Armitage-Shanks is a fabrication. To put an end to rumours of this kind we are happy to publish the following entry from a well-known clerical directory:
