Letter from Thomas MacGreevy to George Yeats 17 February 1927 Thomas MacGreevy National Library of Ireland. Autograph letter signed. NLI MS 30,859

MacGreevy has been getting settled in in Paris 'coping with students.' He thinks he could get six notes of recommendation for the position at the National Gallery, but without them his chances would be pretty slight. He doubts that the 'Free State Government' has requested Thomas Bodkin for the job. His job in Paris is year to year and he will have to send a formal application once the Gallery job is posted. Reginald Grundy has made him a Paris correspondent for The Connoisseur. Grundy has recently been in America and suggests MacGreevy try some 'American ways' with the Gallery and will reproduce some pictures in The Connoisseur. MacGreevy closes by inquiring after the health of Lady Gregory and WB.
