Hayes was the Irish theatre literary critic and correspondent for the NEW YOR TIMES and the BOSTON GLOBE, and in his letters, he provided Hale with information regarding developments occurring in the Irish theatre in the first quarter of the twentieth century. He wrote about the Abbey Theatre and the Gate Theatre which was started by Hilton Edwards and Micheál Mac Liammóir, and the latter's effect on the decline of the former. Hayes talked about the emergence of new Irish authors who were producing their works at the Gate, contributing to its success. He provided criticism of some Irish authors and of performances at the Gates Theatre including those of Curtis Canfield, Denis Johnston, and his THE OLD LADY SAYS NO; Thomas Cornelius Murray and his THE PIPE IN THE FIELDS; and Lennox Robinson's EVER THE TWAIN; and the plays THE DOVER ROAD, JUGGERNAUT, and TEN NIGHTS IN A BARROOM. Hayes' letters also include details of his travels in Ireland. To be found are two letters from T. S. Eliot to Emily Hale discussing English and American authors and poets such as Auden and Ezra Pound; and one letter and a photograph of F. C. Armstrong.
In addition, there is a typed note initialed by Hale dated 1967, explaining her relationship with both Hayes and Armstrong.
