CALLOUS GERMANS.

TO TIIE EDIXOU. Sir,-Some days ago a cable told us that the German sailors simply jeered at our drowning men off the Aboukir and the other two cruisers we lost. Doubts were thrown on this statement. I beg to hand you a letter from my sister in Southsea '(Hampshire). What she relates was told her hy a survivor. She fays also that some German patients in the hospital spit- in tho faces of tho nurses. though there are others who appreciate the kind attention thev receive.—l am, etc., ' E.T. November 11.

"We have some German wounded in the hospital near here. Some are very grateful for tho kindness shown them, but others behave abominably, even to in the faces of the nurses. One of our poor fellows here has lost both eyes and both logs. There are some awful cases. They all confirm what we read regarding tho Germans' brutality. One of those who wero saved from the Aboukir is a gunner, and arrived home this morning. He has a sad tale to toll, and lookn all the worse for his terrible experience. He saya a German submarine made its appearance riight amongst the hundreds of drowning sailors, but never attempted to save any of them, but simply jeered at them."
