Landreth also speaks of her time in Ireland and her regret at not having seen him during that time. Landreth also writes of a student attempting to receive a scholarship to Trinity College "She had no background of Irish history, and only the vaguest idea who Erskine Childers was, or what he stood for. I gave the names of three men who had been close to him, but dampened the blanket as deftly as possible. I can't imagine how she picked EC but no one with that scant knowledge should attempt the job.".
Letter is typed on headed paper "Bapst Library / Boston College / Chestnut Hill 67, Mass.[achussetts]".
