David Parsons. Autograph letter signed to Beaton.

Scope and Content

Hopes Beaton had some joy of the lily-bulbs last year. Is going to make sure that he has this year, as he felt such joy at Beaton's "romantic intertwangle" with Garbo. As a teenager he used to queue up for the Garbo first nights. He always despaired of MGM who never provided her with good enough leading men. His aunt met her a few times and he always asked her for every detail. Garbo's eyelashes were supposedly so long that they got tangled up when she closed her eyes. Is going to see his sister this summer. Perhaps he could come to Beaton and bring some bulbs as well as some acidic soil to neutralise his chalk. Will write again nearer the time to see if Beaton is likely to be at home.
