I remember you. Thanks for letting old Albert Hand know whats what. Bill says thanks for the lolly. ‘Beat Monthly’ knows more about where we’re playing than I do. Even if we do go to the continent it wouldn’t be for more than 3 weeks so don’t worry. Bye for now love Keith xxx’.

The letter come with a note from Shirley Arnold that reads ‘in November 63, the editor of Beat Monthly magazine, wrote a scathing review of the Stones second single ‘I Wanna Be Your Man’ written by Lennon/McCartney. I wrote to the editor telling him what I thought of him and his review, which was printed the following week. See attached cutting from my 60s scrapbook signed by Mick and Bill Wyman. Early 64 I went to work for the band. I stayed working for them until 1972. The letter measures 13.5cm x 17.75cm (3.4 inches x 7 inches). The condition is very good plus.
