This letter was written by Billy to a friend soon after he joined Larry Parnes' stable. Yvonne Ellis of Liverpool provided this photocopy for the Sound Of Fury fan club's magazine.

Dear Jerry,

I hope you're keeping fine. I'm having a fabulous time. The girls here are great. Night clubs are fine. I'm gonna learn to ride a motor bike.

Well Terry, don't forget and write. Larry's going away on Thursday for 10 days. If I stay down here I'm gonna have a ball.

Ask Margo and the girls what goes. I told them all in my letter. I think it will be OK to read it.
