Date: 1882, Oct., 18 
Document Type: Letter (8 p.)
Content Summary: Irving has said his only free day is Sunday. On Sunday 29th they will have friends staying at Knebworth for a week after the Hatfield Ball. He gives details of trains to Stevenage or Hitchin for Irving to stay the night. On reflection he praises Irving's Benedick highly in mixing dignity and humour, and making the character sympathetic, particularly in the scenes with Don Pedro and in the church scene with Beatrice. He is fortunate in a Beatrice charming to the audience and it is understood, to Benedick himself.

Date: 1882, Nov., 3 
Document Type: Letter (2 p.)
Content Summary: A note from George Loveday carries Irving's generous proposal. It is unprecented recognition of a fellow artist's labours and personal reputation and he joyfully accepts. He is touched by Irving's liberality. If it works out he would very much like to play Dogberry on the occasion if it suits Irving's arrangements.
Published: -
Notes: Creswick had heard Irving recite as a schoolboy and recognised his talent. In the Lyceum production, which opened on 11th October Sam Johnson played Dogberry, and this may refer to a benefit performance. George was H.J. Loveday's brother and worked for J.L. Toole.
