Letter from George Yeats to Thomas MacGreevy. [22 August 1923].


82 Merrion Square

Dear Mr. McGreevy

I have forgotten to return your "Hotel Rambouillet"Possibly a description of the Hôtel de Rambouillet, which was situated close by the Louvre, on the site of the Palais Royal; it was the residence of Madame de Rambouillet, whose literary salon in the 17th century attracted intellectuals such as Mme de Sévigné, Corneille, Richelieu, and La Rochefoucauld, but whose imitators were later ridiculed by Molièrenote. Here it is now.

Yours etc.
George Yeats
