Richard Rodgers in Imperial Theatre - 26 March, 1972

from Letter from Richard Rodgers to Leonard Bernstein, 27 March 1972, page 514:

Dear Leonard Is there anything you don’t do better than anyone else? Your playing last night was simple and pure that it gave a grace that little song never had before. Your words were kind, too, but taking the trouble to be there was the kindest of all. I appreciate it tremendously. Fondly Dick
