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.


My dear Sir

I am sure your performance will be admirable. You might just speed up two parts which drag, the end of Scene II Act II after Watson's exit, and the examination of the wall in the last scene.

With best wishes

A Conan Doyle.
