TitleSir Barry Jackson Birmingham Repertory Theatre, to Nicoll
Extent1 item
Date20 October [1940]
DescriptionHas sent Nicoll and Josephine Nicoll a script. The calm and detachment of the British contrasts with the hysterical tone of U.S. newspapers and makes him wish that the Americans could suffer the Blitz for 1 week. Has seen results of raids in poor quarters of town: sickening. More news of the air battle. The matinee yesterday was a success. [Continues 23 October]. Edith's brother was killed in a raid on Monday
