Dear George, It was good to hear you on the telephone and thank you also for your letter. Bimba was pleased with her Matisse and will be writing to you, I imagine, in time; she is still getting used to the Slade. I gather Mary may have sounded a bit aloof when she first spoke to you on the telephone as she thought you were someone else, a rather dubious Irishman from Bath whom we met on the Island of Sark! I'd dearly like to come over again but there's little likelihood of it for a couple of months as I'm behindhand with 3 jobs simultaneously. A good man called David Lytton (B.B.C., knows all about South Africa) is just about to visit the Six Counties; I told him to look you up. Gerald Hanley appeared in the George yesterday and told me about the evening he had with you in Cork.
