    The Rolling Stones/Brian Jones
    A rare, emotional hand-written letter from Brian Jones to Linda Keith, circa 1968, the letter written in blue ballpoint pen on two sides of a piece of stationery beginning Dearest Darling Linda, I'm presently very smashed..., Jones goes on to suggest I have to tell you, we (Ossie Clark and I) were talking about people who should do the Eamon Andrews show and after suggesting a few really groovy people to fuck Eamon's head up, Ossie suggested "How about Linda Keith to really floor him" Wow! How people dig you..., Jones continues with telling Keith about his plans for the future I'm getting two houses together Linda, a good scene, one in town + one in the country - please be with me, I'm so lonely by myself. I need you so badly + I love you so much, please understand what fucked us up before, a terrible combination of events, Jones ends the letter with a proposal of marriage: Please let's start again. PLEASE MARRY ME. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. All My love, Brian
