Carl Van Vechten. Typescript letter signed to Beaton, from New York.

Scope and Content

Is immensely flattered that Beaton wants the profile pictures. Would be happy for him to use them in his autobiography without payment. Would like Beaton, if he can, to get hold of a picture for him from the National Gallery. If a "beautiful Hindu boy" named Ram Gopal turns up Beaton should be very nice to him. He will be with Aleksander Janta, a Pole, who is also very nice. They are having very hot weather.
