Merrill states that however "audacious Macready may have considered her privately, he evidently felt the need to represent himself as a 'gentleman,' and he had the good business sense not to wish to offend one of the strongest performers and potential costars he had encountered. And Charlotte, for her part had to admit that, despite any feelings of resentment between them, she had learned much about rehearsal techniques and elocution from Macready, and performing with him had helped her career immeasurably. Nevertheless, when Macready did not invite her to accompany him on his Southern tour, Charlotte was disheartened. She wrote of her disappointment to Thomas Colley Grattan" (66).
