Columbia University, Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library, Peter Blake Papers
Blake has arrived in France, but travelled through England too quickly and undercover and so was unable to get in touch. He asks if his wife would be able to stay with them when she arrives from the US after "Germany falls". He bought some chocolate for Conrad and lipstick and bobby pins for Peter. He tried to get "sweet Beau", but "the druggist thought it somewhat odd that an infantry lieutenant should be using 'Seductive Passion' lipstick, and I thought I'd better leave it at that and the Bobby Pins".
