• Letters to Stanford


time on those days. Another thing -- I may be
coming,to Brighton to see Robt H and perhaps you
could come over' (not necessarily to meet him,unless you
wanted to). Hope all this doesn’t sound a muddle.

Still no news from Peter F about a NI decision
but he feels aggrieved" at Longley’s offhandedness.
So do I. Longley has a well-paid job and is right
at the heart of the stablishment,so he doesn’t give
a damn. His wife lectures at Queen’s Univ,,Belfast,
and writes poetry reviews for the IRISH TIMES. So
It would be dangerous for Fallon to offend him.
The usual poetry politics,as you see. Still,I
seem to be gaining allies over there - Ormsby
always writes in a friendly way (he’s just accepted
a non-Fox poem which I enclose). I also enclose
the latest H.U.
Love to you both -

Valerie has agreed to send you Fiacc’s anthology,
due shortly. I’ve written to Fiacc asking him to
make sure a copy is sent to THE TEACHER. Fiacc
is another fellow 'who seems friendly and,like
Ormsby,answers letters.
