Asking an unidentified recipient to dine with him: "I have just received your telegram. I would fix, if I must, Friday 28th - if you would delight me in having supper here - for on Monday 24th I am invited by Mr. Hichens to have the pleasure of meeting you at the Carlton". - The Mr. Hichens in question is very likely the journalist and novelist Robert Hichens (1864-1950), co-author of Henry Duff Traill's 1898 play "The Medicine-Man" that had been created with Henry Irving at the Lyceum Theatre. - On stationery of the Lyceum Theatre. With a French translation in a collector's hand in pencil. Slightly dust-stained.
