    Beatles Related - Klaus Voorman Drawing of Stuart Sutcliffe on Back of Letter. A superb drawing in black ink on the reverse of a single-page handwritten letter from Beatles associate Klaus Voorman to Stuart Sutcliffe's sister, Pauline. The letter was written circa 1962, in reaction to Sutcliffe's sudden death from a cerebral hemorrhage at age 21, and on the reverse he provided a full-page drawing of Sutcliffe in heaven, surrounded by cherubs and wearing wings and a halo with his guitar slung across his shoulder. The letter reads in part: Just a little drawing of your beautiful brother in heaven. I hope it makes you happy...all the little angels are Stuart's fans, they have a Stuart fan club. The angels say Stuart is much better than Elvis and he looks much more beautiful." The letter is in Very Fine condition with fold creases and mild wear. Accompanied by a COA from PSA/DNA.
