Dear Ms Duane,

I am the Archivist in charge of the Irish Dialect Archives, University College Dublin and am writing to you in connection with a valuable manuscript you most kindly presented to Professor Tomás de Bhaldraithe in or around 1978.

Professor de Bhaldraithe has since died, and the only background information I have found so far on this manuscript is some correspondence you and he had around that time, in which you mention letters written by Seán Ó Dálaigh, the author of the manuscript, to your father, in connection with which you wrote: '... I do not know if they would be of any interest to you. For the reason I mentioned in connection with the other letter, I should like to look them over. I have not had time to do this.... I am glad that you were pleased with the manuscript, and thank you very much for your book and letter.'

I should greatly appreciate an opportunity to discuss this matter with you, for the purpose of writing a background note on the manuscript for inclusion in our libhaile Órga (Golden Jubilee) catalogue, which I am now compiling.
