Letter of thanks from the British comedian for a dinner invitation, matted to an overall size of 12x10
Typed letter signed: "Dickie Henderson", in blue ink, 5x8½ matted with unsigned photograph to an overall size of 12x10. March 6, 1979. In full: "Dear Mr. Pearce, Thank you for your letter and invitation to me to come along to your Buffet Dance on the 28 April. Unfortunately, I am unable to do so as I shall be in South Wales at that time. Please accept my apologies and my very best wishes for a most successful evening. Your sincerely". British comedian Dick "Dickie" Henderson (1922-1985), usually called "Dickie" to distinguish him for a famous music hall father, performed on his father's act from early childhood and appeared in the film version of Noel Coward's Cavalcade at age 10. His father combined songs and humor - he was the first to sing "Tiptoe Through the Tulips" - and Dickie incorporated music as well. His greatest fame came after he signed this slip, when he launched the first of five TV series (four bearing his name in the title) in 1953. Honored as an OBE, Henderson also appeared on stage and in a few films. Letter not examined outside of matting. Folds crossing through center. Toned. Light surface creases. Corners of matt lightly worn and creased. Edges of matt slightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition. Not matted in Gallery of History style.
