"I am to act Orsino (the Duke) in ""Twelfth Night"" at the Jenkins’. I could not resist that; it is such a delightful part; and I got them to put off my rehearsals to the last moment, so that I may get a fortnight with you in London and a fortnight with Bob in France: for that must be done this time, [italics]couteque coute [end italics]. I am not altogether satisfied that I shall do Orsino [italics]comme il faut[end italics]; but the Jenkins are pleased, and that is the great affair."

Notes
Before undertaking to rehearse and act the part of Orsino for the Jenkins, RLS could have read the text of the play in one or more modern editions, at school and/or on his own. Henry Charles Leeming Jenkin had been RLS’s Professor of Engineering and he and his family and circle were now friends of the young man.
