Jasper Milvain writes to Madame Arcati with a clarification on the condition of the Mail's editor-in-chief Paul Dacre following rumours of his unwellness:
"You're wrong, I'm afraid. It's not his heart and he'll be back at work very soon."
And I am glad to hear it. What a world we live in that people freely speculate about the health of others without a thought for accuracy or sensitivities. I have noticed in Mr Dacre's absence a rising tide of acid in the Daily Mail. It needs a steadying swig of Dacre Milk of Magnesia to dull the pain of, er, heartburn.
