Autograph letter signed to Beaton, from Beverly Hills.

Scope and Content

Found Beaton's sweet telegram on arrival. Was sorry not to have seen him as they left. Is sure he felt thrilled to be doing so well. It is lovely to hear everyone praising his talent. Wishes he was staying on. However, "one can't forever strain one's nerves". Describes her uncomfortable journey. When the journey ended they were greeted with thick, pouring rain. Dined out at the Trocadero and went to the Clover Club. Today it is hot and sunny and "one feels lucky to be alive". Will be aching to see the next Vogue. Loved the photos but felt that she was not quite a good enough model. Hopes Beaton will have a rest on the boat and that he has nice company with him.
