Autograph Letter signed: "F. W. Eastman", 1 page, 8x10. Sheffield [England], 1896 August 12. On letterhead of Arthur Hendrey's No. 1 Tour, performing A Merry Madcap, by Victor Stevens. To "Dear Mr. Webb", in full: "Many thanks for verse. I will try it one day when we are making a change. Kind regards. Yours sincerely". F. W. Eastman was performing in an English tour of one of the burlesque-style musicals of Victor Stevens, A Merry Madcap. Stevens' musical shows, beginning with Nymphs of the Danube (1882) were popular on the burlesque circuit in the late 19th century. But burlesque was losing popularity in England at this time, supplanted by the light operas of Gilbert and Sullivan, and others. Three horizontal folds. One vertical fold. Light nicks and tears at edges. Lightly creased. Lightly worn at edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
