Letter from Augustus John to Evan Charteris, dated 14 May 1929, giving his opinion of Arthur Roberts. >
May 14 1929
My dear Charteris,
In answer to your request for my opinion of Arthur Roberts; I consider him about the most important buffoon England has ever produced - a born comedian & a most accomplished artist. Even when I knew him in his old age he was incredibly entertaining.
I think any old student of our stage would agree.
