Title'The education of an agnostic', 'Punch', September 1958
DescriptionIncludes: Invitation to write article and correspondence with Editor of 'Punch' (Bernard Hollowood), May-August 1958.

Later correspondence with 'Punch' requesting copy or transcript of article (perhaps for projected collection of writings). 1972

2 typescripts and manuscript drafts, variously corrected, one dated 3 September 1958.

Later revised version, 1972.

Correspondence wreceived from readers after publication of original article, September-November 1958. Although Blackett seems to hve considerably toned down his first ideas (Hollowood's letter of 27 August 1958 says 'I am sorry that you have taken out the reference to the Royal Family and the efficacy of prayer'), this correspondence is all hostile.
