The direction was largely explicit in the writing which is as it should be and things moved along well. His name is Michael Anderson'. Haven't heard of him lately. The Cohan play is not going to be easy. I've had some scripts sent to me over the years which tried to capture the flavor of the man and his times and they were all sadly lacking in any real excitement. They say they have some great music which he had written but had never published.

I was at the Navy Board this morning & had I known of the continuation of his indisposition I would have called. Could I not do the business alone if Sir Robert continues indisposed - Pray let me know by tomorrow morning what his ultimate decision is. I think we need not leave London till 10 Thursday & the change of air in a close carriage will perhaps do him good ...", 3 sides 4to., with integral autograph address leaf and seal, no place, Tuesday, no date but circa
