Autograph letter signed to Beaton, from Verbier

Scope and Content

Arrived back yesterday from trips round New York, California and Kansas. Is sorry to hear about Beaton's mother. Two days after he left, Jack broke his leg. He didn't cable Capote and has been there alone trying to take care of the dogs. Visited the murderers at Lansing Prison, an 'extraordinary and terrible experience'. Does not know what to do in the summer. May go to Corsica. Would like to go and see Dr. G. in Zurich, but can't leave Jack. It seems 'incredible' that the workmen are still in Beaton's house. Oliver S. is in India for three months designing the debut party for Babe's daughter. Had lunch with Princess Lee and understands that her marriage is 'all but finito'.
