CHAPTER THIRTEEN

Nixon play, and it is probable that the new comedy which Mr. Wilmer Cassells commissioned from Mr. Nixon some months ago will now be ready for the opening of his season at the Garrick. When we add that Mr. Herbert Stott has practically decided on a revival of Halue,r, Partner at the Globe, and that Yes, Papa, which has been doing such good business at Southsea this week, is only waiting for a suitable theatre before coming to London, it will be seen that Mr. Filby Nixon is likely to be very much on the theatrical map this coming autumn.'

And even if, owing to some unforeseen circumstance, Mr. Filby Nixon did not actually make any geography, at all that autumn, he would still be found in dressingrooms, being asked urgently for a play, or heralding its long-awaited approach; he would still attend memorial services; and still you would feel that all the best plays of the last twenty years had, somehow or other, been Nixon plays.
For the reputation which Halves, Partner had brought him would never be left behind. It is true that there had been a collaborator, now dead; it is true that that collaborator, like every other collaborator, had been convinced that he had done all the work; but it was also true that, long before the play was sold, the collaborator had sickened of Halves, Partner, and had offered all his rights in it to Filby Nixon for a fiver. Nixon had behaved with a sort of correct generosity. A legal assignment of rights had been made, the consideration being, not the suggested fiver, but twenty pounds, almost all Filby Nixon's savings at that time. Moreover, at first, the names of both authors had appeared, with whatever visibility was available, on programmes and bills, although this was not insisted upon in the agreement. Also, up to the time when that `bit' in the Sunday paper had misrepresented the position, ten pounds had been sent
