In Collection: Pearse Papers, 1870-1932
Description: William Pearse writes: "I must write you, at least one letter, tho' indeed, I don't know what to say. Tho' I am enjoying myself in the fuss and bustle of the great city - yet still every place I go reminds me of the time we spent here together. This place seems miles from every place in the parish, just on the skirts of the Latin Quarter - but it is only three minutes walk from school - ''Academie de la Grande Chaumiere.'' The only place within easy distance is the Luxembourg - but then I usually lose myself there - coming up on the wrong sides. However 5 cetimes takes one almost everywhere on trams and I am getting to know them now. I was in the Hotel de Ville on Friday - I got a ticket by applying for it - it is truely a wonderful place - gorgeously magnificent. We did not see it here last time. I was at the Petit Palis a few times and shall go again - as so far, I find it the most interesting place [in] Paris. They have added a lot of small sketch models and drawings by all the leading artists. It seems so interesting to see how they went to work. I was also in the Beaux Arts but I must go again. By the way, I wonder who edited the Claidheamh when you were last away. I had the issue with me - it was so uninteresting and commonplace. I am sure anyone could see you had not to do with it...". Includes a postscript: "NB Got your poem since - it is very beautiiful - a few pictures I saw here reminded me of such things".
