My Dear Stone

I return Mr. Miller's1 letter.

Great projects are afoot here for a grown-up Play in about 3 weeks time. Former schoolroom arrangements to be reversed—large stage and small audience. Stanfield bent on desperate effects, and all day long with his coat off, up to his eyes in distemper colors.

Will you appear in your celebrated character of Mr. Nightingale?2 I want to wind up with that popular farce, we all playing our old parts.

  • Ever affecy.
