ARCHER, William (1856-1924). Critic and journalist.
Eight Autograph Letters Signed, to various correspondents, in all 14 pages and 1 envelope, two with filing-holes, dated 1880 to 1918. Subjects range from crying off writing a paper for the Sesame Club, discussing an article he is writing and giving advice to an aspiring playwright.

Three letters are probably to J[ames] B[rand] Pinker, others are to Mr Perry, Miss Lee, Mrs Ashton Johnson and an unidentified correspondent ('Madam' - a long letter to an inhabitant of Girton College, Cambridge, answering a query forwarded to Archer by Beerbohm Tree).

'... it is doubtful whether it would be worth your while to persevere in play-writing'. [To Perry]. ...'
