Letter from Thomas MacGreevy to George Yeats 9 December 1927 Thomas MacGreevy National Library of Ireland. Autograph letter signed. NLI MS 30,859

MacGreevy has heard from others that Yeats is in Cannes and that WB is unwell and offers to come and visit at Christmas if it would help. He has 'innumerable pupils' and has recently had to have some dental work done. He spends a lot of time with 'Anglicists' [??] and is writing little, although he anticipates publishing them with Hogarth Press and has finished translating La Chartreuse de Parme. He recommends WB read the 1922 Cres edition. Dolly has begun working in Harry Clarke's glass works, leading MacGreevy to wonder about 'the stained glass spinsters of Dublin.' MacGreevy thinks [artistic education ?] she would be better off in Paris.
