Orpen, Sir William, 1878-1931
[Illustrated letter from William Orpen to Mrs St George with a sketch of the St George family and their dog]
Handwritten letter, on 8, South Bolton Gardens headed paper, in which Orpen writes that he has 'nothing to write about' so he has drawn a picture of the St George family and their dog. He also informs Mrs St George of his idea to 'take a house at Howth' for himself and his family to spend the summer holidays. The letter continues on the reverse where he mentions that he went to see a 'fight' on Saturday and the Russian dancers 'who are wonderful'. He also writes that he would be glad to hear from Mr Baker.
