It´s doing very well at the box office. I´m glad that you were able to see the Joey Bishop Show and Lucille Ball´s show when I was on them......How nice that you had such fun with Barbara Britton when she was in Baltimore. She is a lovely, beautiful girl. And I´m glad that you met Melvyn Douglas. I made four films with him years ago at Metro, and he was always a joy to work with - so professional and so pleasant. He´s a brilliant actor´ (22nd April 1968), ´I´m so happy that you visited with Fay Wray, Peggy Lee, Barbara Britton and her husband. You are so enthusiastic about "people", and I am sure that effervescence charmed them......Yes, I did break one ankle and sprained the other, but all is well now, and I am back on my feet. The accident happened two months ago´ (28th June 1968), ´Thank you....for sending me your column "Showtime", containing your review of Lawrence Quirk´s book "The Films of Joan Crawford". I am so deeply grateful to you, Fred, for all of your nice comments about me - how good of you to write so glowingly about me and my films´ (26th December 1968; accompanied by a copy of the newspaper column referred to), ´Your article about Boris Karloff is an excellent one. He was a lovely, gentle man, and a brilliant artist. I´m glad that you saw his talents, and have praised him so highly. Did you send a copy of your tribute to Mrs. Karloff? I know she would love to have a copy´ (7th April 1969). Some very light, extremely minor age wear and a few small traces of former mounting to the versos, VG, 4 + 1
