Letter from George Yeats to Thomas MacGreevy. 15 March 1928Trinity College, Dublin. TCD MS 8104/57

Yeats has been unable to write until now as she deals with a sick husband and child (WB Yeats has been ill with congestion of the lungs since the previous November, and Michael Yeats was sent to the Swiss school l'Alpe Fluerie in Villars-sur-Bex to improve his health). She writes 'had I known that all this might happen I should certainly never have had a family!' As a result the Yeats's have taken a flat in Rapallo, Italy to spend the winter in a warmer climate. Yeats describes the flat and seems pleased with it, although she would not like to live there all year. Meanwhile, WB is pleased to be getting out of responsibilities. Yeats is not sure if Michael will be well enough to stay in Switzerland when they return to Dublin in the spring. She proposes that if her travel plans work out as she intends, that she and MacGreevy meet for lunch in Paris in April. She closes by apologizing for writing so much about her husband and son, but hopes that MacGreevy will be understanding about it.
