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

MacGreevy begins with some more specific information about Cocteau's Orphee saying that it was meant for The Dublin Drama League. MacGreevy is working at writing a few things including the Valery translation, the Vertumnus ballet which will be performed in October, and he may be working on a ballet with George Antheil soon. In mid-July he will be traveling through Italy and Paris for two weeks with 4 Americans for the Lunn's Travel Agency, mostly because he needs the money. If he can publish the Valery translation he feels he will be financially secure through Christmas.
