Excellent content A.L.S. 8vo, 4 pages, 29 Chestnut Street, November 30th 1884, to Mr. Booth, in part: "... I was at rehearsals or napping ... except the first time when my daughter's costume prevented her from seeing strangers and I was forbidden to ask you to take a bite with us. Your second letter reached me during the play last evening. It is very kind of you to send me news of Launt [Thompson] although the information is of a sad nature. I presume his work is at a standstill, and I fear he will lose the [General] Burnside job: he told me that he had not secured a suitable studio for so large a work and that he is stressful the statue will undoubtedly be given to another." *Launt Thompson (1833-1894) recovered from his illness and completed the huge statue of General Burnside on horseback in 1887. It is housed in Burnside Park in Providence, Rhode Island.
Considered by many to be the greatest American Shakespearean actor of all time and the brother of Lincoln assasin John Wilked Booth.
Condition: Very Good
