Gregory (Lady Augusta) An interesting ALs. to (T.P.) Gill, Tuesday, n.d. on Coole Park headed paper, saying Mr. (George) Moore ‘ would be much obliged if you would let him have the few lines you suggested,’ and mentioning that ‘I am thinking of getting together and editing a little book of essays, in the sytle of your ‘Literary Ideals,’ of last year – & calling it ‘Irish Ideals’ – vol. II. ‘There are articles of Russell, Yeats and others it would be a pity to lose,’ with a second ALs, also from Coole, undated, ‘Alas, I am a long way off from your pleasant party. I shan’t be in Dublin for some time… Yeats has gone to Paris & won’t back till after Xmas. If you want a French speaker, Synge is the man,’ giving his address. Two good signatures. Interesting lot. As m/ss., w.a.f.
The book of essays mentioned is probably ‘Ideals in Ireland.’ (2)
