A letter hand-written by the late Sir John Gielgud, 1953, 'Dear Mrs Spriggs, It is hard to reply with any sort of adequate gratitude for so charming a letter as you wrote me. I thank you for it with all my heart and believe me the thoughts of my dear friends and their superb loyalty to me has meant very much to me in these few days - something to be thankful for all of my life, even when brought about by an humiliating experience. Very sincerely, John Gielgud' October 24th, contained within post-stamped envelope SEE ILLUSTRATION

The letter, written from his home address, follows a now notorious episode in Gielgud's life, when he was arrested on account of 'importuning for immoral purposes'
