Lot 710: Irish playwright (1880-1964) best known for such working-class dramas as The Plough and the Stars and Juno and the Paycock. ALS, one page both sides, 5.5 x 7, St. Marychurch letterhead, March 14, 1953. Letter to Francis Owen, in part: "There has been an exciting time in Dublin about the new play, & still a lot of commotion in argument for the play and against the play. I hope your friend, Miss Hayden, wasn't too disappointed when you told her I could not give her the play. Another of mine now—'Red Roses For Me'—is under contract in New York. Dublin is still crowding round 'The Bishop's Bonfire,' made more remarkable during the season of Lent." In fine condition.
