Ref.No: 6473    
Author: Irving, Sir Henry >>
Address: Hotel Metropole, Whitby
Recipient: Terry, Dame Ellen Alice >>
Address: [London?]
Date: 1905, Aug., 5 
Document Type: Letter (4 p.)
Content Summary: Ellen has written on first page of letter in pencil " A Council of the Actors' Association are trying to carry out a scheme; I had asked advice". Irving says every actor and manager should support it. The actor to give one night's salary every year for the benefit of theatrical charities- each to receive a portion according to merit. There should be a representative Committee to make decisions. It is not a bad idea but Irving is doubtful about it gaining support - especially amongst actors almost impossible. Advises her to say that it is an excellent scheme and she will support it if it is put into practice. He hopes she is enjoying a rest. He will be sorry to begin again on 25th September - that is how he feels at present. He wonders if she knows Whitby - very quiet and not far from dear Mrs K. He used to come there often and saw a good deal of the du Mauriers. He has heard that her reading of the letters was very beautiful. She must reserve it for their dramatic school. He has been approached by another dramatic school but has respectfully declined. These schools are really all failures - they have no teachers - they will have to wait for Irving and Terry! All love H.

Notes: Written just before start of his final tour. Mrs K. may be Mrs Beatty Kingston.
