Dear John: Dr. Ian Leslie passed to me your copy letter of the entries referring to Irish Drama in the Great Soviet Encyclopedia. I have made some corrections in pencil. I see in the covering letter from the Deputy Chief Editor, Mr. L. Shaumyan, that he would like comments, corrections and additions. I wish I had time to do this job in the interests of accurate scholarship, but I haven’t. It would take at least a week’s work. However, my comment is this: I think the encyclopedia is completely out of date and inaccurate so far as Irish Drama is concerned. This really will not do. It is slipshod and unworthy of Soviet scholarship. I think you should pass these com- ments to Mr. Shaumyan. If at any time in the future you would like a contribution to this work of reference; I should be glad to do it provided I am given time and clearly told what is wanted. With best wishes, Yours sincerely, (JOHN BOYD) John Warren Esq., 137 Carmeen Drive, Rathcoole, BELFAST. Text
