1962 letter to a fan about an out-of-production record
Typed letter signed "Joyce Grenfell". 1 page, 6¾x5¼, on addressed stationery. March 27, 1962. Addressed to Mrs. Esther Home, Milton Court Hotel, S.W. 7, Chelsea. In full: "Dear Mrs. Home, Your very nice letter gave me so much pleasure, and, although you said don't answer it, I feel I want to thank you. I am so sorry that record is deleted. I didn't realise this. I believe it is possible to buy secondhand records from shops that deal in that sort of thing. One of them is probably Foyles in the Charing Cross Road. I am having a lovely time at the Haymarket and the audiences are large and encouraging. Once again thank you so much for writing. Yours sincerely,". Grenfell (1910-1979, born in London) was a British comedienne, singer and actress. She's probably best known for her monologues and one-woman shows. Grenfell was a daughter of privilege and wealth whose mother was Nancy Astor's sister. She made her stage debut in 1939 and, during World War II, toured India, North Africa and the Middle East, entertaining British troops with her singing and comedy. She wrote her signature song during the war in 1942: I'm Going to See You Today. She also got her start in movies during the war, with a total of over 20 mostly comedy movies and TV shows to her credit, and collaborated with Stephen Potter in writing a series of 30 satirical programs called the "How" series. Her wartime journals were publised in 1989 as The Time of My Life: Entertaining the Troops. Lightly toned and creased. Page has been folded in half and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
