Vivian McCan. Autograph letter signed to Beaton.

Scope and Content

Was thrilled to hear of Beaton's new distinction on the 8 o'clock news. Would like this letter to be the first to reach him from England, but doubts it will be as she knows he will get hundreds. His mother was also very happy about it. Longs to know what Beaton thinks of Japan. Knows there must be more to it than "cherry blossoms and geishas". Is glad Beaton has a sympathetic companion. Liked Truman Capote very much. Christmas has been great fun. Asks him to send a postcard if he has time. Sends her love and congratulations.
