Letter from George Yeats to Thomas MacGreevy [Spring 1924][p.1 recto]
82, Merrion Square, S.
I felt that you thought my remark last night very unkind. And its no business of mine anyway — but you do sometimes hurt & shock people by saying things to them —personalities —in public which you would never say in private. I have good cause to know it and don't[p.1 verso] believe you realise that other people are nearly, or quite, as sensitive as you are yourself. However as I said its no business of mine but I wanted to modify a general statement into what I really meant.
See you tonight
