Bram Stoker and Henry Irving

The letter is in Bram Stoker's hand, as secretary to Henry Irving, the great Shakespearean actor who also owned The Lyceum Theatre in London at the turn of the century. Note that the letter is written on embossed Lyceum stationary. It is Irving's signature which appears at the end of the letter. In part it reads:

June 1897.
