Author: Irving, Sir Henry >>
Address: Imperial Hotel, Torquay
Recipient: Stoker, Bram (Abraham) >>
Address: [20 Bedford St]
Date: 1905, March, 29 
Document Type: Letter (4 p.)
Content Summary: How would it be to announce 'Becket' for 12 nights not mentioning matinees? Ten days' announcement of third week would be ample, or it might be 'Becket' the first two weeks and 3rd week. Ask what they think of this at Drury Lane. Is Stanford coming back? If not someone must be engaged. He said several months before that he was off to America to produce a play, but nothing about returning. Any news of Major(?) Campbell or George Lewis? Irving is getting along slowly and he hopes well, with quiet and rest. He sees that Heinemann has secured an alteration in American copyright - is it any good? He is glad Stoker is going to 'Hamlet', as Harry will be. He will want his friends. Irving has great faith in him.

Notes: 'Hamlet' is probably a lecture by H.B. Irving; see Letter 1445. George Lewis was Irving's solicitor, and Stanford probably Henry B. Stanford, previously a member of the company.

Content Summary: Angus Campbell: told him to postpone June 9 for week at least. General(?) Scott: Get Irving a list of payments from the Bankers a/c which he mentioned.
