LETTER FROM BELFAST

Dear Larry,

Thank you for your letter last
week asking me towrite an article for
Ais-Eiri. I've made two attempts already and
failed.xxxxx Will this letter do instead?
If it's unsuitable, tear it up. But the
fact is that what I have to say about
living and writing in Belfast at present
is far too personal, too disjointed, too
fragmentary, to be readily shaped into an
article. xxx xxxx xxxxxAn article presupposes
expertise,xxx special insights,xxx research,
and I can lay claim to none of these. There have
been many millions of words uttered or written about the
'troubles'; broadcasters, journalists,
professors, politicians, economists, historians, sociologists,
authors and 'authorities' of all xxx sorts
have had, or are having, their say, and
such is the xxxxx xxxlinguistic deluge thatI'm drenched
xxxx xxx xxwith it all and can take no more
