Apparently the avuncular relationship of Macklin to Garrickthere was a twenty-year difference in ageschanged gradually over the 174243 season into a friendship between equals. Macklin's roles frequently supported Garrick's. When Macklin played for the first time Noll Bluff in The Old Bachelor, Garrick was Fondlewife; when Henry Fielding's comedy The Wedding Day was introduced, Garrick was the original Millamour, and Macklin (who also wrote and spoke the prologue) was Stedfast; in Jane Shore that season Garrick played Hastings and Macklin the Duke of Gloucester, both for the first time.

On 19 April he played Tinsel in The Drummer there and closed out his season on 28 April as Marquis in The Gamester. Very likely he returned then to the provinces. The theatrical annalist James Winston recorded in The Theatric Tourist (1805) that Macklin was playing at Portsmouth in 1732. Sybil Rosenfeld in Strolling Players and Drama in the Provinces proposed that he was "trying his strength" in the Bath company early in the 1730s. He may have been a familiar figure on provincial stages in the south and west of England.
