With Cyril Francis Maude (1862-1951), actor-manager. Topics covered include: the possibility of RD playing Charles [Surface in Sheridan's School for Scandal] in a matinée performance with Maude in early 1942; RD's invitation to Maude to take a part in his production of An Ideal Husband in September 1943, which Maude turns down as he feels the part is unsuitable.
