Fr.: R B Sheridan

Dock.: Sheridan | to | Mr. Holloway | Novr. 14 | 1807

14 Nov. 1807



Dear Holloway,

If you will only get a Fortnights respite from Heath1 I am positive the Trustees will extricate Shaw and pay the Demand on him as they ought to do. In the mean time pray manage so that it may not be necessary for him to stay away from his business.2—I know well that you will do everything in your Power to accommodate us and anything friendly to me.

I wish much to see Shaw | your's sincerely |

R B Sheridan.

Editor’s Note
1 Holloway has drafted a reply to S. on the cover: 'I have so repeatedly assured Heath and his Son that the matter would be settled by you that I have lost all Credit with them … I will send your Note to Shaw immediately but I very much fear that if he goes to the Theatre he will immediately be taken in Execution. Do therefore Let me beg of you to exert yourself to relieve him from this unpleasant situation. If you could procure for the Moment about £150 he could I think obtain a respite but certainly not without.'
