He signs this handwritten letter congratulating a friend on a new book
Autograph Letter Signed: "Cole" in pencil, 1½ pages, 6x8, front and verso. London, no date, Thursday. On letterhead of the Hotel Splendide and Green Park Restaurant to "Dear Douglas". In full: "I went to White's & found your grand book. It is beautifully done & I congratulate you. Thank you so much for it. It was very thoughtful of you. I'm rehearsing but will try to drop in on you one night. Goodbye & so many thanks." Cole Porter (1891-1964), known for his bouncy, lively style and witty lyrics, was a successful Broadway composer by 1928. He composed music and lyrics for more than 20 musicals, including Anything Goes (1934), Kiss Me, Kate (1948), Silk Stockings (1955) and High Society (1956). His classic songs include "Night and Day," "Begin the Beguine" and "I've Got You Under My Skin". This letter was written before 1958, when Porter, who had injured his legs in a horseback riding accident in 1937, had his right leg amputated. He refused to use an artificial limb and became a recluse in his apartment at the Waldorf-Astoria in New York City. Lightly creased. Chipped at upper and left blank edges, tape remnant at left margin touches 6 words (all legible). Mounting remnants at upper blank margin of verso (no show-through). Otherwise, fine condition.
