Bernstein, Leonard (1918-1990) Correspondence to Reneé Longy.
One autograph postcard signed, "Dear R., I fervently hope the minor operation is truly minor! What a shame you couldn't make it. In any case, I leave here for good on the 21st, which is any minute, zut, and it's been just a flimsy shadow of a summer, so brief, & almost all gray rain. Eh bien, alors, comme M. de la Rochefoucauld a dit... Love you & be well, Lenny," post marked July 18, 1959, Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts.
One typed postcard signed, "Dear R: Just a rushed word to say I haven't forgotten, and to thank you for your sweet note on the occasion of November fourteenth. What a memory! I'm so glad modern music goes so well in the Mad South, and let me hear how Longy goes in the Mad South. Love: Lenny, December 16, 1952, New York City.
One small autograph note signed, "Chere Reneé: GLOIRE pour '78! Love, Lenny & Felicia Xmas '77."
