Box file containing a letter from Rev. Dr Donal Cregan President St Patrick’s College Dublin commenting very favourably on the text of R.J.H.’s thesis loaned him by Prof Moody. The main purpose of the letter is:
‘ … to say how impressed I have been by your work and how much I have learned from it. I cannot in fact see that you have very much to do to it before publication … I am not sure either that it would be a good thing to re-write for one county only: the inclusion of the two counties makes a useful contrast’.
He offers to publish a slightly shortened version of the chapter on towns in Studia Hibernica. This letter was dated 25/1/1971.
