It refers to a Victorian stage instruction to the actor, in the script. See 

It's about as clear as I can find as a stage instruction. I'm guessing from the script that accompanies the footnote that the E refers to enter. The footnote says L. means Left, but I think from the context it means "leave". Good luck.
