Abstract:

Includes letters signed, initialed and unsigned from Charles James Mathews to various recipients; letters to Mathews from various correspondents; fragments of letters; two envelopes; a clipping; a short essay; two promissory notes; rehearsal notes; a farewell address and fragmentary notes.

Recipients include Andrews, J.A. Reynolds, Harley, W.J. Hammond, Mr. Brundley, Webster [possibly Ben Webster?], Danes, Mrs. Fitzwilliams, Buckstone [possibly J.B. Buckstone?], Charles Kean, Johnston, R.K. Lane, Knowles, Lewis, Cogniard, Mrs. B[eedle?], Fechter [possibly Charles Fechter?], Charles Dickens, Planché, Allcroft and other unidentified recipients (1-40). Correspondents include Thomas John Serle, George Jones, George Ellis, John Knowles, Mrs. Winston and C.E. Tisdall (41-48). The letters mostly concern theatre-related business. Many of the letters indicate "copy" or "duplicate." The letters are written in various hands; it is not always clear which are in Mathew's autograph. The letters are addressed to and from various locations in England and Ireland. The letter from Tisdall is written at the top of a print of the "Intended New Parochial Church of St. Andrew, Dublin," with another print of a different viewpoint of the same church pasted at the bottom of the first print (48).

Other items include two envelopes addressed to G.C.H. Lewis [George Henry Lewis?] at 10 Ely Place, Holborn, postmarked 18[6?]5 and 1875 (57-58); a clipping about Charles James Mathews appearing in San Francisco, dated March 19, 1871 (59); a very short piece, "The gentleman with a cough" (60); an IOU for £25. Dated May 12, 1855 and signed by C.J. Mathews and E. Glover, Esq. (61); a promissory note to pay Charles Mathews £38-18, dated April 17, 1847 and signed by John Williams Cole (62); two leaves of notes entitled "Extracts from Fitzball," after night rehearsal, dates from Oct. 6-11 [no year] (63); a farewell address to the provinces (64); brief fragmentary notes (65-66).
