Letter from the actor Squire Bancroft to a Miss Pollard, asking about the availability of rooms.
[embossed] 10 BERKELEY SQUARE
[handwritten] My Bancroft would be much obliged if Miss Pollard will kindly inform him whether she will have pleasant rooms to offer in the first week of Nov. a small front sitting. Not ground floor. Two single bed rooms (one front) and a maid's room would be required - if so would Miss Pollard send terms and particulars.
London, Oct 1881.
Sir Squire Bancroft (1841-1926) was an English actor-manager.
