Oct.30,1970. My dear Derek, Tnanks for note(on beautiful card). I'll look forward to getting your book from Elizabeth. Good news about B and B. I may have told you I applied for a "Bursary" xxxxx awarded by N.Ireland Arts Council. Had a letter of regret,but the Secy said I should apply next year. A faint gleam of hope. (They awarded 3 of these,£300 each,to local authors - all in their thirties,I’d say.) This broadcast may be a help,in showing the boys who hand these things out that I didn’t stop writing at the end of the 40's. Did I tell you my old pal Roy McF has a pook of poems coming - don't know when - from Chatto ? He wrote a poem for my 50th (enclose a copy): a good boy. I'm nearly healed up now in that awkward place ...What a time of it poor Peggie has had! Sympathy to her and good wishes for a speedy recovery. Meeting on Nov.llth wd be fine. Shall we meet at Victoria ? (There are plenty of little restaurants near-by .) In the Golden Arrow bar ? Let me know when and where - anywhere in central London will suit,of course. I've written anotherx chapter. It deals with my meeting with Forrest Reid. Do you know his work?- "Apostate" etc. Love, Robert Text
