Well, it's to be released on March 9th. About the Palladium. We're not sure of the exact date, and we won't be topping the bill, but never mind eh? In reply to which kind of girl etc. Well, I like any kind except silly, dizzy ones...Anyway, Thanks once again for writing, and the many compliments you've paid us, Cheerio, signed in blue ink lots of love Paul McCartney XXX, lacking envelope, 8 x 13 inches (20x33cm)

Footnotes

  • The letter was written in early 1963, as the L.P. mentioned must be 'Please Please Me', actually released in the UK on 22nd March. It is interesting to note that at this early stage in the Beatles' growing fame, mention is made of the London Palladium. They appeared there on 13th October that year, on ATV's 'Sunday Night At The London Palladium' and contrary to Paul's prediction, they topped the bill.
