Original Source
Letter from George Yeats to Thomas MacGreevy Letter dated 26 July. Envelope postmarked 1926 George Yeats Trinity College, Dublin. Typewritten letter with autograph annotations signed. TCD MS 8104/42

Yeats gives her opinion of the draft of MacGreevy's poem, probably Crón Tráth na nDéithe; ruminates on the Anglo-Irish, surmising that the "truth was only to be discovered in an uncivilized country by the highly civilized and slightly mad foreigner"; mentions that Robinson is to get a salary increase; eye trouble has kept her from reading; WB also having eye trouble; they go nowhere in the evenings.
