• To McCann


Loughall house Armagh. Tuesday

Dear Mercy, Many thanks for your note of invitation. I had thought indeed that I must have sadly offended you by my lapse of memory on the last occasion; but I am glad to find that it isn't so. Marie, by the way, has been in London since November last – taking an analytical course – and won't be home again until the end of February. And I alone sit lingering here. I shall be delighted to visit you on Sunday eve next provided that the roads are passable. No, I hadn't heard about Maurice James being in Armagh. Otherwise I certainly would have made a point of asking him out here. Excuse the delay in answering your note but I'm just getting over a bout of flu. Best wishes, Bertie.

WR Rodgers
