"Irving's Last Hours"

was a nonfiction article by Bram Stoker. It was published in the UK under the full title "Irving's Last Hours. Mr. Bram Stoker's Affecting Narrative. Bradford's Kindness." It appeared in a special "Sir Henry Irving Death" column in the "Mainly About People" section of the October 16, 1905 issue of Bradford Daily Telegraph, Bradford. This was probably the first time Stoker spoke to the press following Irving's death since this article appeared three days after he died at the Midland Hotel, Bradford.
