• Letters to George and Mercy McCann


liked to get one for myself but am not as well off as Bimba. Thank you v. much indeed for

everything. You supplied the core of the holidays. Bimba I think was much set up by her

visit. She is all agog now to get at her big new canvas. I went down with M. last night to

the mermaid theatre at Puddledock to discuss a part for her in Ibsen but they said she

was to young for it. Rather awful since the Mermaid and Ibsen would constitute a good re-
entry to the theatre. If George comes over he must be sure to let me know in advance.

Anita, the Dutch girl, will always take messages. Love to you both, Louis.
