I write to correct two facts included in your recent tribute to my late husband, Jeremy Hackett (25 April, page 14).

First, he was actually 65 and, second, and more importantly, we were in Krakow for a meeting of the RICS’ governing body.

You can imagine the problems I experienced, but I was supported throughout by the RICS, its president and chief executive, both of whom I would wish to thank publicly.
