The Editorial Executive Committee welcomes letters, which should be less than 250 words. Before a decision to publish is made, letters which refer to a published article may be sent to the author for a response. Any letter may be sent to an expert for comment. When letters are published, they are usually accompanied in the same issue by their responses or comments. The Committee screens out discourteous, inaccurate or libellous statements. The letters are sub-edited before publication. Authors are required to declare any conflicts of interest. The Committee's decision on publication is final.

Letter to the editor

Editor, – Continuing references to the Sacred Eye of Horus in Australian Prescriber have been of interest to myself, and they have finally galvanised me into action.

I have had the symbol for the Sacred Eye of Horus on either side of the bow of my fishing boat for some 7 or 8 years now, in the pious expectation that Horus will hear my prayer, and will lead me to a good fishing spot.

On the stern of my boat is an inscription which says 'The Gospel according to St John, chapter XXI verse 6'.

For some reason, my wife cynically accuses me of 'having two bob each way'.
