Dear Prof. Grierson

This is to introduce to you Tom McGreevy Carnegie Librarian by profession & by taste & industry a profound student of European painting. If he keeps from drink & poetry he will be an acknowledged expert in a few years.

I am here for rest under doctors orders but am returning much the better for sun and air in a couple of weeks.

Yrs —
W B Yeats

As at present he neither drinks nor writes poetry his chances of success in life seem excellent.
