A chara,

—I am researching the life of the author, poet and playwrightWinifred M. Verschoyle, née Letts (1882–1972). Her two great-nieceshave kindly allowed me access to her papers, but I am sure that manyother people would have their own stories to tell about her. Ms Lettswas a great friend of my late mother’s. Despite having been well knownand widely published in her lifetime, she seems to have disappearedfrom Irish literary history. If any of your readers knew or knew of MsLetts/Mrs Verschoyle, or indeed Mr Verschoyle, I would love to hearfrom them.
