My Dear Stone.
The experience of every new Rehearsal night, gives me such strong assurance that I was mistaken in supposing there to be an universal feeling of common consideration among us, which would prevent any of us from inconveniencing and utterly disregarding the rest. (to say nothing of the purpose to which we sottd pledged, or the expences incurred in promoting it) that I must, though very reluctantly, abandon my share in the design.
I therefore address this note to every member of the Company, as an intimation that I have, henceforth, nothing more to do with it.
Faithfully Yours always
Frank Stone Esquire.
