19 September 1971

Dear Desmond:

Sorry for the delay in commenting
on the Friel chapters. I have two
excuses: the first is the IRA (presum-
ably) bombed us out of Bedford Street
rather effectively on the day before I
started on three weeks leave which I am
now enjoying! In Belfast!! I have
read the chapters. They seem to me
first class. I have got from them many
insights into Brian's plays and I thought
I knew the plays reasonably well. I am
going to re-read the chapters and I shall
write to you again.

Brian is doing a 'Self Portrait* pro-
gramme for me which may be very interest-
ing indeed.

I will write to you again when I get
my wits gathered.

With best wishes to Joy and to all
my friends in York.

Ever

(John Boyd)
