It will be illustrated by a Dublin artist. The poem, I think, is quite good but not one of his best. Writing to order......But I'm delighted as he rather feels he's been kept out in the cold by the New Men. Roy is a very good fellow who always pretends he isn't - I think he fears that people might think him sentimental which he believes is The End. Roy also tells me that Freddie Vine's brother-in-law, a man called Mac Mahon has been murdered. I knew that was the maiden name of F's 2nd wife, but it's a common Catholic name over there, so I didn't connect when I read of the xxxxxxx murder. Freddy + death seem linked (a son drown, 2nd wife dead, brother-in-law murdered...) Hope you can read this screed - Love to you both - Robert Text
