Title: ALs to Mark Lemon
Saturday Fifth October 1850.
My Dear Lemon,
This is to enclose the sketch of Georgina's dress, and to say that I propose to rehearse in London, on Friday the 1st. and Saturday the 2nd. of November. As soon as you let me know where the Rehearsals are to take place, I will send round calls to everybody. Get up Jack Humphreys.
This is also to trouble you with two Commissions, respecting my Northamptonshire Theatricals. First, if you have Louison will you send it to me at once, either by post or Railway parcel, according to its size. Secondly, will you take the following trouble on yourself, for the love of your Manager.
Finding out Knebworth Theatre too large for my Northamptonshire friend's rooms--which are ancient and low--it occurred to me the other day that Nathan advertizes Scenery for Amateur plays; and I wrote to Mrs. Watson (my friend's wife) to say that I thought it probable he could fit them up a sufficiently neat little stage. She takes mightily to the notion, and wants Nathan to go down there, next Tuesday if possible--see the place--and consult, and propoge. Said Nathan being ill, perhaps his wife can send his brother or some competent respectable person. Will you see if it can be done? I write on the enclosed card how he is to go.
I don't think Leech is coming here at all.
