Jill Angela Henriette Balcon. Autograph letter signed to Beaton, from Greenwich.

Scope and Content

Letter concerning death of Cecil Day-Lewis. It was good of Beaton to write. He knows exactly how she is feeling, 'lost and tormented'. There was no one in the world more lovable and he was 'so exquisitely amusing'. At the end he was heroic. Has been trying to keep a target of twenty-five letters a day and failing. Her children are as shattered as she is.
