He signs a brief, typed letter (1943): "Please let me know how I stand with the bank?"
Typed Letter signed: "Cole", 1 page, 5½x8½. Los Angeles, California, 1943 February 22. To "Dear Harvey" [Albert H. Cole], in full: "Please let me know how I stand with the bank? All my best to you and Mildred. Yours old cousin". 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". Porter injured his legs in a horseback riding accident in 1937. He suffered through many operations, including an amputation, remaining creative productive despite enduring constant pain. Albert "Harvey" Cole, a cousin, managed Porter's finances from the songwriter's home town, Peru, Indiana. Although Porter came from a wealthy family and was very successful by 1943, he lived a lavish lifestyle and - after his 1937 accident - faced constant medical expenses. Hence, he needed to keep an eye on his bank balance. Mailing folds, not at signature. Slightly frayed left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
