Letter from George Yeats to Thomas MacGreevy. [December 1922].

[p.1 recto]

Dear Mr. McCreevy;

I heard yesterday evening that AE had refused to give an answer either way (formally) about the Senate but said he must consult his wife. They think he is going to back outGeorge Russell, poet and editor of The Irish Homestead, had like WB Yeats been invited to become a member of the newly established Irish Senate; he refused on the grounds that he could not afford to give up his paid position.note. So dont repeat what I said. He hasnt the moral courage of a flea!

Yours etc

George Yeats
