Folding creases; overall very fine. 5 x 8 inches (12.8 x 20.2 cm). It is merely to tell you that my blue Alpaca dinner jacket suit is the smartest thing ever seen on land or sea & is one of the loveliest presents I have ever hadand you are a darling duck. I tried twice to get through to Michael on the telephone but without success. When I get back in August I will try again & will flaunt my blue Alpaca suit under his nose.
All my love to you darling & take care of yourself. From the collection of the family of Marlene Dietrich, a lifelong friend of Noel Coward. Their close relationship began in 1935, when Dietrich called Coward to congratulate him on his film The Scoundrel he hung up, thinking it was a prank call. They remained friends until Coward's death, often exchanging letters about Dietrich's turbulent love life.
