• Boyd Letters


1 January 1989

Dear Lizzie,
Thank you very much for your lovely card -
and your domestic news.
I haven't been in London - except for one night
about 8 months on my way to Lille University
in N.E. France to give a lecture on Sean O'Casey,
and to examine a student for a degree - she'd
translated one of my plays.

I,ve been very busy this year and Elizabeth's
health hasn't been good, and I've had some eye trouble
(glaucoma) but it dosen't worry me as yet. have been
writing hard (and, luckily, with success!) but I won't
bore you with this. I

John Boyd
