In full: I'm at my sisters - as she has been ill - and I'm borrowing her paper to talk to you!! I wanted to call you long before this & fully intended to - to thank you from my heart for such a lovely evening - and to say I'll not forget it! The room looked so lovely - the table with all its crystal & pretty dishes & cloth - the fire-light and the good good food!It was like being in a story somehow! And above - and over - it all - your warm hospitable and welcoming kindness. I felt a little selfish - having it all to myself! But how I enjoyed it!!
The movie was in the mood I was in! And I appreciate all you did for me!
I hope you will come & eat dinner with me soon. You seem like an old friend! Old - in the friendship way - heavens knows - not in years! I wanted also to tell you - I read for'Show Boat' & Mr. Hammerstein asked me if I had ever been on the stage - which put me in my place!!& he really wanted Charlotte Greenwood - for which I can't blame him! The Pajama Game' - I read carefully through later - word by word - and tho' I read for it & they liked it I guess - & asked me to read and sing - for Mr. Abbott - I decided against it as'Mabel' is an'also-in-the-cast' part - & is truly unnecessary to the plot - in the production & fades out early in the second act! I may not have done much'in the stage' - but I know what that type of part means!! That's my report on the'State of M. Thank you again - dear - for a great deal of fun & joy! And I hope to see you again soon. Fields (My Little Chickadee, 1940) and Harold Lloyd (The Sin of Harold Diddleback, 1946).
