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 one side of a sheet of stationery, the letter beginning Dearest Linda, I'm so sorry that such a tragic thing seems to have severed our relationship... and continues ...Let me please say darling that I'm deeply aware of your problems. Please do everything you can to sort out everything. I'm sure you can shake off the devils that taunt you. That you could so often forget your troubles to help me so lovingly fills me with such deep emotion. I longed to help you Linda, really I did, but a kind of self-preservation instinct erected a barrier every time the longing to help arose in me. This produced the conflicts inside me which resulted in violence, insults and other hurts I caused you..., unsigned, 1p.

The letters were written in circa 1968, at a time when Jones' mental state was becoming increasingly fragile and he was becoming estranged from the Rolling Stones. His last formal appearance with the Stones was in December, 1968 for The Rock And Roll Circus and he died just over six months later in July, 1969.
