FRANCIS BRETT YOUNG SIR,—The definitive biography of my husband, Francis

Brett Young, is now in active prepara- tion. May I, therefore, beg the hospitality of your columns to ask if those who possess letters from him will be so kind as to allow me to copy them.

Any letters sent for this purpose should be addressed to me c/o National Provincial Bank, 33 St. James's Square, London, SWI, and will be returned to the senders as soon as copies have been made.—Yours faithfully, JESSICA BRETT YOUNG
