Dear Beatles

All I want to do is mother you. So do most of the girls I know.
It must be a marvelous feelings, George, to realize that all around the world you have millions of mothers.

Dear, darling Beatles,
To think that I, Harriet Watts, live on the same planet with the Beatles, breath the same air as the Beatles, see the same sun, moon, and stars as the Beatles.

Dear Beatles,
Please dedicate you next song to me.
If you do, it will be a terrific seller, because I have loads of friends, and they will buy the record.
Your fan,

Dear Beatles,
I read in the newspaper that you have millions of dollars and you travel all around the world in big airplanes and stay in the best hotels and hove lots of clothes and eat in fancy places, but I want to know something.
What do you do for fun?

Even in the summer-time.

With love from,

Dear Beatles,
I am the President of a Beatle fan club. My friend Brenda is Vice President, Alma is secretary, and Joyce is treasurer.
Our dues are 15 cents a week, and we are saving money from our dues for a trip to England to see our dear Beatles.
It will take six years to get enough money.
Joan W., President
The Beatle Club of Brooklyn
Dear George,
If you ever called me on the telephone, I would faint right on the spot.
And if I fainted, I wouldn't get a chance to talk to you, so you'd better send me a letter. I don't faint from letters.
Love to you from,
Nancy R.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Dear George,
I am the girl who touched you at Kennedy Airport, and I am never going to wash that hand again as long I live.

Dear Beatles,
My name is Roger. I am 11 years old. Could you please tell me how I can get to be a Beatle?
I can't sing, dance, or act, but I am a hard worker and I like to make lots of money.
Roger W.

Dear Ringo,
You are the handsomest man in the world, except for my father.
My father is handsome too, in an old way.

What do you do when you are not singing? Do you gargle a lot?
Your fan
Henrietta Z.

What toothpaste do you use? What soap do you use? What cereal do you eat? What color socks do you wear? How big are your shoes? Do you like white bread? What is your favorite ice cream flavor? Do you drink Coke or 7-Up?
Please answer quick, because I want to know all the important things about you.
Your best fan,

Dear Beatles,

That is I love you backwards. Actually, I love you forwards and backwards.
Janet L.
New York City
That is "forever" backwards.
Dearest John,
I would like a lock of your hair. Also, a lock of hair from George, Paul, and Ringo. You know you have plenty of hair, so you can spare one lock each for me.
With love,
Sylvia M.
New York City
P.S. Please write the name of the person on each lock, so I will know who the lock of hair belongs to, as it is hard to tell when it is not on a person's head.
Dear Beatles,
I need the names of some BEATLES fan clubs near my house.
There are no BEATLES fan clubs in my neighborhood. I told my mother that I want to move, but she doesn't think that is a good reason.

Dear George,
Have you ever thought of becoming a minister?
If you were a minister, everybody would go to church all the time.

Dearest, sweetest Beatles,
I have Beatles pictures all over my room. I have Beatles pictures over my bed. I have Beatles pictures over my desk. I have Beatles pictures in my closet. I have Beatles pictures over my bookcase.
My father hopes you are just a fad.
Love from a Beatle fan-
all the way!

I adore you.

There are now four Beatles-George, Paul, John and Ringo.
There should be five Beatles-George, Paul, John, Ringo, and Hilda.
I am Hilda.

Dear George,
I would like to fix you up with a blind date. I know that most boys don't like to go out on blind dates, but this girl is sensational!
I should know, the blind date is me!
Forever yours,

Hello Beatles:
I like your singing very much.
Which opera do your songs come from?
Lucille M.
Raleigh, North Carolina
Dear Beatles,
Do you think you could sing at our school on May 15?
The reason is nobody ever sang at our school dance, except Marsha Goldman, who is in grade 10.
Marsha sings OK but she always forgets the words.
Please say yes.
