30 Manchester Street, Manchester Square, W.
6 May ’08

Dear Mrs Greg,

I am very glad to be able to accept your kind invitation to dine with you on Saturday next {1}.

Everyone is delighted with Walter’s article in the ‘Library’, really a most brilliant piece of work and one that must give him a permanent position among the foremost of Shakespearian scholars. I think Trinity should be proud of their Librarian.

Thanking you for the invitation.

Yours very sincerely,
Ronald B. McKerrow


Greg has written at the head in pencil: ‘False dates in Sh. Quartos | ‘Library’ April 1908’.
