Autograph Letter Signed to [Edward] Draper.

Henry Sambrooke Leigh (1837-83), English dramatist [THE SAVAGE CLUB]
Publication details: 
16 July 1879; on letterhead of the Savage Club, Adelphi Terrace, W.C.

One page, 12mo. Very good, if a tad grubby. Thanks Draper for his 'amiable but unconvincing' note. 'Do you not know that I was irritated into bad language by being accused of "d - d impertinence? This, too, before I said a discourteous word. - Goodman [the writer Edward John Goodman], of course, rules the Committee [of the Savage Club] and even you have listened to the voice of that Israelitish charmer.' Concludes 'Mais n'importe. Either this evening or tomorrow I send in my resignation. I will neither apologize, nor renew the matter in cold blood.' Signed 'Henry S. Leigh'.
