Scope and Content

From Henry Irving to JHN on paper headed "Lyceum Theatre". Topics covered include: an acceptance of an invitation to a dinner to be held in honour of Irving by the Manchester Arts Club [of which JHN was Chairman]; Irving's regret that he will not be able to honour the memory of Benjamin Brierly in the way JHN suggests, as he will be in London with a new play; a contribution of £20 towards the "George Sheffield fund".
