Scope and Content

Largely undated correspondence with Mary Hayley Bell (Lady Mills), actress and writer. Topics covered include: the purchase of a new flat by her and her husband John Mills; a trip to Algeciras in Spain where Mills is filming; and her concerns about RD's health. /4-5 are both undated and obviously date from an earlier period than the letters in /2-3. In /4 Bell notes she is sending RD a script and in /5 asks for her play back (a note by RD states that the play, Treble Key, was returned the following day).

Dated at: Algeciras, Spain; and Richmond Hill, Surrey.
