Another letter to O. P. Heggie (ca. 1910-1911)

From The Arthur Conan Doyle Encyclopedia

This letter was written by Arthur Conan Doyle circa 1910~1911 from the Hotel Metropole (London) to Australian actor O. P. Heggie, which portrayed Sherlock Holmes in The Speckled Band: An Adventure of Sherlock Holmes from 1910 to 1911.


Dear Sir

I thought your performance very good indeed. Many thanks for it.

I wonder whether it would be possible as you exit at the end of Scene I Act III to remove your disguise with a sweep of your hand on the "Now then, Billy!" The disguise is so admirable that I fear many hardly realise that it is not a double.

Yours very truly

A Conan Doyle.
