Autograph Note signed: "Madge Kendal", 4½x3½ postcard postmarked London, May 20, 1903. To Gerald Christy, London, in full: "[illegible place name] is a long way off when you can do better near - can you? I think say no". Madge Kendal (1848-1935) born in Great Gimsby, England, married actor William (Grimston) Kendal (1843-1917), who took her name, in 1869, and the couple starred in stage performances from Shakespeare to the "fairy comedies" of W. S. Gilbert, touring the US for the first time in 1889. The Kendal's, who helped restore respectability to the London theatre after a period of disrepute, retired in 1908. Outliving her husband by nearly two decades, she became a Dame Grand Cross of the British Empire in 1927. Soiled. Large 1 inch tear on bottom left corner, though piece is still present. Lightly toned. Corners lightly worn and creased. Ink stamps. Otherwise, fine condition.
