Actor and costume designer (1868-?). The first letter, docketted "Alas poor Tom -", to Miss Grosvenor, 4 December 1940, 18 Selwood Terrace., 2 pp, 8vo. He apologises for not being able to attend any of her at homes. "I have been at Plymouth & Cardiff the last fortnight with H. B. Irving [Henry Brodribb Irving, 1870-1919] arranging his new play". The second letter, to L. E. Berman, 21 April 1940, with embossment 52 Temple Fortune Hill, 2 pp, 12mo, in stamped envelope addressed in autograph. He thanks him for forwarding the letter from Barking. As he had not received it he was going to write "that nothing had reached me from John & perhaps it had been sent to Sybil Thorndike". He hopes he enjoyed the day they spent at Barking. "Its the first time I've been invited to lunch by a Mayor in his Chain. & I was much impressed both by him & his corporation." Two items,
