My dear Derek, Many thanks for yrs of Good Friday. Yes, “the other hand” was W.B.Y.; It’s “The O’Rahilly” frcm “Last Poems“, p.354 in COLLECTED POEMS. I’ve got the 1958 edn that belonged to Clifford D. - sometimes with interesting notes by C.D. Interesting news about Jack B - “where the swift Bermudas ride“ - I quote from memory. Also about Whittington-Egan and yr Latvian ex-student. Last night I met Freddy V and his new lady friend,an Ulster Protestant, xxxxx,at L.G.'s. Freddy has put on an appalling xxxxxxx amount of weight. When he was out of the room she told us he was drinking very heavily when she met him - still is,but she has tried to cut it a bit. She’s a typical Prod of the less educated sort - thinks Paisley is a great man and forthright in opinions. F could do a lot xxx worse. They’re off to Cornwall where F’s xxxxxxx ancestors hail from. The case cost him £2,000, according to his friend - and he’s been at his old game of spending money like water. A strange character. The Minister of Edn in N.I. has not replied to my onslaught but there was a reply yesterday by Michael Longley stating the facts. I’ve forced some information out into daylight - there's a bursary pool of £5,000 p.a. for Text
