Phyllis Wilbourn. Autograph letter signed to Beaton, from New York.

Scope and Content

Thanks Beaton for his "wonderful warm letter". It was so sudden but feels it was what she would have wished, to "go gently, quietly after a busy day and a theatre in the evening". She told her once that "While I live, I'm going to live" and she did that. She was pleased with what Beaton wrote in his new book about her. Thanks Beaton for asking but she does not need anything at the moment.
