Letter from Thomas MacGreevy to George Yeats Letter dated 24 February, 1926. Thomas MacGreevy National Library of Ireland. Autograph letter signed. NLI MS 30,859

MacGreevy implores Yeats to write; feels isolated without the social circle he enjoyed in Dublin; writes of films and concerts he has been to and of a general feeling of ennui; comments on the Abbey Theatre riots at The Plough and the Stars; mentions TS Eliot and Vincent Reade; met Yeats's step-father; describes an evening with Robinson and Travers Smith, using the same language as in his poem The Other Dublin; had his horoscope done and would like Yeats's opinion of it.
