Irving, Henry, British actor (1838-1905). Eigenh. Brief mit U.

N. p., 17. VI. 1901.

8vo. 2 pp. on bifolium.


Asking an unidentified recipient to dine with him: "I have just received your telegram. I would fix, if I must, Friday 28th - if you would delight me in having supper here - for on Monday 24th I am invited by Mr. Hichens to have the pleasure of meeting you at the Carlton".

The Mr. Hichens in question is very likely the journalist and novelist Robert Hichens (1864-1950), co-author of Henry Duff Traill's 1898 play "The Medicine-Man" that had been created with Henry Irving at the Lyceum Theatre.

On stationery of the Lyceum Theatre. With a French translation in a collector's hand in pencil. Slightly dust-stained.
