Brian Epstein's letter to Stowe schoolboy David Moores:


9th February 1963

Dear Dave,

Thank you for your letter of the 5th instant. As it happens the group is booked on April 4th but as you say it would be a convenient date for you I have ascertained from the promoter concerned that I can give him an alternate date. One thing, however, I must advise you is that the BEATLES play a maximum of 60 minutes in two separate half hour sessions. I don't know what your reaction to this is but I hope it will not preclude you from offering me the engagement. No doubt you can 'fill in' with a local jazz or rock group. Looking forward to hearing from you again as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely,
Brian Epstein.
