1p., 4to. In fair condition, on lightly-aged paper. The letter begins: 'Never having forgotten that you once asked me "What is the sense of knowing Mrs Lynd if you don't make use of her?" I am sending you a spare set of proofs of the new book. The publishers, having made me add thousands of words to it, now tell me that it is a bit too long'. The second part of the letter refers to a visit by 'Lennox [i.e. Lennox Robinson] and his wife [...] He has just been doing June in Belfast, he has Aodh de Blacam's translation, A Saint in a Hurry! at the Abbey next week, and then The Critic (Sheridan, arr Lennox Robinson)'. He concludes: 'So I am just sitting here in the celtic twilight composing books on Woolworth's writing pads and, sometimes, killing snipe.' The play 'A Saint in a Hurry' was produced at the Abbey in 1935.
