DearestGeorge Yeats

Thanks for your letter. Dolly was pleased at the news of course and is working away at Caesar. I'm sorry W.B. doesn't mend quickly. Lennox is terribly conscience stricken about giving him 'flu. The weather is so changeable but its mild and soft here tonight and I expect its much the same in Dublin and its the other sort of weather that's bad for 'flu patients so I hope he'll be all right. I've had it, but very little. Feel rotten on my feet but can remain on them and bed is hateful even in one's own house let alone in another's. The atmosphere hasn't exactly lightened since it transpired that I am going to Paris. Hester is gloomy and not being at all well for a good while ?? looks pinched as well as gloomy, and because of her gloom it ?? isn't very cheerful for Dolly.

The Paris appointment is only year to year & the next year begins in June. So if there is any likelihood of Alec Martin's bright idea of putting me in Lucius O Callaghan's place materialising it wouldn't interfere. Oh George, I should be so pleased & proud. I'll count on you for news on the subject.

Love to all,
