Letter from Edmund Harding to Mrs. Inglis Fletcher

September 9, 1955
Mrs. John Fletcher
Bandon Plantation
Edenton, North Carolina

Dear Mrs. Fletcher:

I have your letter of the 9th and we are planning on having a costume sent for Queen Anne from Philadelphia. I am sending you the measurement blank tomorrow which you will please return to me as soon as possible.

The date of the pageant is October 4th but we would like also to have you here on Monday when Mr. William Polk is to make an historical address.

We, of course, will expect Mr. Fletcher to come with you and if you will let me know when you will arrive I will arrange about your reservation.

There is much agitation at the present time about having the pageant another night as we have already had more requests for admission than we can get in. Would it be possible for you to also be present on Wednesday night.

Edmund H. Harding

Letter from Edmund Harding to Mrs. Inglis Fletcher
Letter from Edmund Harding to Mrs. Inglis Fletcher about the pageant Queen Anne's Bell performed at the 250th anniversary celebration in Bath, N.C. The letter from Edmund Harding (on personal letterhead--"The Tarheel Humorist / /Humor, Philosophy, Music") mentions her costume for the Bath pageant and about extending the pageant for a second night. The pageant was produced as professionally as possible with lights borrowed from the outdoor drama "The Lost Colony" on Roanoke Island, and as this letter indicates, costumes for many of the performers were rented from out-of-town theatrical costume companies.
