Letter from Thomas MacGreevy to George Yeats 7 February 1928 Thomas MacGreevy National Library of Ireland. Autograph letter signed. NLI MS 30,859

MacGreevy references a letter that he recently wrote to WB, saying that it was difficult for him to write since he knew WB had a high opinion of Wyndham Lewis's recent works which MacGreevy thought derivative and 'sado-masochistic misogyny.' He goes on to recommend the Foyot Hotel, and hopes that she will be able to stay longer than 2 days in Paris so that they may go to the symphony, opera, or theater. MacGreevy has been rediscovering Moliere at the theater recently and finds that he now understand modern French better than classical as a result of his theater-going. He mistkenly believes that Lennox bought some perfume for Meriel Moore and is interested to see what she is like. He asks for Yeats's opinion of her. In postscript, he corrects his earlier sentiment to say that he could write more to WB if he had something from him to go on.
