Letter from Augustus John to Evan Charteris, dated 14 May 1929, giving his opinion of Arthur Roberts. >


Fryern Court

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.
