Signed letter

1952. No Binding. TLS on personalised notepaper, 24.5 x 18.5 cm, headed 'Laurence Olivier', 17 West 54th Street, New York, 17 March, 1952. "My dear Lady Wavertree, Thank you so much for your letter, and I ask you please to forgive this answer to it being typewritten. I am ashamed to say that I cannot remember with exactitude the relationshp of the diminutive Richard Brinsley Sheridan. I will write and aks Mrs. Sheridan who will, I am sure, be able to give you all the information that there is about this young man. It was so nice to hear from you again. We have many happy memories of our visit with you in New Zealand. There is, I believe, a very good fairly new book on R.B.S. by Lewis Gibbs published by Dent & Sons. Yours, with every good wish, sincerely, L Olivier". Lady Wavertree, formerly Sophie Sheridan, was related to Richard Brinsley Sheridan, the subject of this letter. Olivier (1907-1989) was one of England's finest 20th C actors on stage and film. He toured New Zealand and Australia with the Old Vic in 1948. Very Good. Item #017815
