Has never written a congratulatory letter to anyone on television as he does not have a TV. However he saw Lord Snowdon's "Don't Count the Candles" at his sister-in-law's. Beaton was "extraordinary" and worth his weight in gold. Discusses the other participants in the programme. Beaton's phrasing was first-rate. Feels that this is a very elaborate fan letter. It has "a background of keen interest in you always, and continuous admiration and respect, over and above friendship".
Glenway Westcott. Autograph letter signed to Beaton.
