• Letters to George and Mercy McCann


she had more shoes than any woman I've ever met. As for the garden, he's turned it into a boneyard. My new book is coming out on Sept. 13th: I’ll send you a copy. The contents on the whole are prerry sombre but I couldn't help that. We saw Sara Thompson, who seemed sprightly. Weather here has been stinking. One might as well be in bed – which indeed I have been mostly. I hope you both flourish. Sorry not to be seeing you at this moment. Love, Louis. P.S. Had a letter from Bimba who'd had a great time at Puck Fair in Killorglin.
