Letter from Thomas MacGreevy to George Yeats 13 January 1929 Thomas MacGreevy National Library of Ireland. Typewritten letter signed. NLI MS 30,859

MacGreevy thanks Yeats for his recent visit to the Yeats home in Rapallo. As a result of the visit and his current, disappointing teaching situation (in which he reports attendance at his lectures is diminishing), he declares he would rather be a starving poet. He asks Yeats to give some money to Caterina to whom he owes 20 lire after his recent visit. He encloses a quatrain that WB wrote for James and Ellen Duncan and a translation MacGreevy has done into French of Yeats's poem "Sailing to Byzantium."
