Darling Clifton- 
This is just an inarticulate but truly felt note to try to thank you for your long friendship, loyalty, and love for Bogie - for seeing him when you did and behaving as you did. I know how hard it was for you but you came through in style.  Bogie always adored you. You knew him long before I did so I guess you knew that. I envy you for those extra years - you were lucky and so was I.  I’m grateful for it all - there’s never been a man like Bogie.  It won’t be the same for us, Cliff - but we have a lot that can never be taken from us and for that I’m grateful.  So darling - you are now my good friend and I like that.
Always my love
- Betty
