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.
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.
