We play a charming little piece on Tuesday afternoon about ¼ past 3 - which I am sure with her dramatic taste she will appreciate - It is a new comedietta called "Mrs Hilary regrets" [by Spenser Theyre Smith] that we played with great success at the Lyceum. / I shall be more than happy as well as honoured if Her Royal Highness would permit me to place the box at their disposal Will you let me know".
