Letter from Britten to Pears, 8 December 1971
Britten and Pears often traveled due to work commitments and the month of December was no different. They wrote often and kept one another updated with recent events – such as the arrival of Christmas Cards, which reads;
Do hope you were pleased with last night – but I expect to have talked with you again before you get this. It was lovely to hear your voice this morning.
Here are some copies of letters for you, & one or two others which have since arrived. Lots of Xmas cards of course!
Much, much (all my) love,
