Dear George and Mercy, I trust you are well and it is too long since I have seen you. You may have heard that an American graduate; Julian Citizen (R.R.I. Kingsman, Indiana, U.S.A.) has been preparing a book on Louis' poetry. (George Frasen put him in touch with me). He lacks biographical knowledge of Louis and, to repair this, is visiting Ireland and England shortly. He will arrive in Belfast on August 6th; remaining “for an indefinite period” next going to Dublin and reaching London by August 10th. I don't, of course, know what he is like, but I have written to him suggesting he meet you. That is, if he gets the letter, the post being what it is. I shall be in Dublin, on a job, at the end of Sept, beginning of October, and if I have the wherewithal. I'd like to come and see you. Love Bertie.
