Keith Richard Handwritten Letter.

A piece of white lined paper on which Keith Richard has handwritten a letter to a Rolling Stones fan. The letter reads
‘Dear Angela, Thanks for your letter, I hope you enjoyed the 2nd show as well. Anyone who queues for 2 days deserves to come backstage, and it was a pleasure meeting you.
Anyway must go – Keith Richard’.

The letter was written backstage at the Odeon Theatre, Leeds, England on October 9th 1965.
