Catalogue Note

Sold with an accompanying letter by Jack B. Yeats addressed to the original owner, in which he writes: 'I send a drawing of myself done by myself some years ago and flattering then. Also I send this little photograph which came out in some paper. MacGreevy is being as kind, and trouble taking, as he could possible [sic.] be these times for Mrs W. B. (who has any amount of matters to attend to, and to me who has very little to do./ With all good thoughts and good wishes./ Yours kindly/ Jack. B. Yeats
