“THE KENDALS”

Demy 8vo, with Portraits and numerous Illustrations.

Price 16s.

“One of the most interesting theatrical records that has been penned for some time.”—Outlook.

“A charming work…. Pithy and well arranged. Turned out with infinite credit to the publishers.”—Morning Advertiser.

“It leaves an impression like that of a piece in which the Kendals have played, an impression of pleasure, refinement, refreshment, and of the value of cherishing sweet and kindly feelings in art as in life. Few books can do that, and so this work has every prospect of being widely read.”—Scotsman.

My dear Friend,—

You tell me that if I give you leave you can weave a story about me that will interest your readers. If that be so, you have my full permission to tell it, and it will please me to do anything in my power to assist you in your work. Whilst writing about me you will, I am sure, speak of those with whom I have been closely associated in my acting life, and make mention of the affectionate regard in which I hold them.

Your intimate knowledge of all that concerns the stage will at least keep you right as to the facts of your pages.

I suppose I must leave the fancy of them in your hands.

Yours cordially,

ELLEN TERRY.
