Love letter to the Vampire in museum exhibit

At the Rosenbach Museum & Library in Philadelphia, a Dietrich love letter to Mercedes de Acosta will be on a Valentine's Day-themed exhibit. On February 11, 13, 20 and March 25, education coordinator Farrar Fitzgerald will lead tour groups of up to 6 visitors age 8 and up through epistolary schmaltz such as "I wanted to heal all your wounds and instead, because I see that I can't heal them, I give you new ones. I wanted so much to give you happiness." The tour is free with museum admission ($10 adults, $8 seniors, $5 students and children over 5).
