A Postcard From John Lennon

After visiting John's aunt in Durness, Sutherland, they became involved in a serious car crash in the town of Golspie. They were all taken to Lawson Memorial Hospital, where John required 17 stitches for a facial wound, Yoko 14 stitches and Kyoko four. Julian was treated for shock. The next day, Cynthia Lennon angrily visited them long enough to take Julian back to London. Ringo and Maureen Starkey substituted for John and Yoko at the release party July 3 for the "Give Peace A Chance" single at London's Chelsea Town Hall.

Beatles autograph expert Frank Caiazzo takes up the story: "Wrought with classic Lennon witticisms and intentionally misspelled words, he starts off by writing '[THIS IS NOT A BEGGING LETTER]' and goes on to say 'I am a crippled family who need som mony to git out of Scotcland a few hundred will do.'

John's Wood, London, England has held a fascination among fans of popular music. Little did THE BEATLES know, that on Friday the 8th of August, 1969, they were not simply shooting another LP-cover; they were adding another tourist attraction to London. The first time I ever visited London, in the summer of 1982 on an interrail-trip, I wasted no time. My travelling companion and I disposed of our luggage at the railway station, took "the tube" to St. John's Wood station on the Jubilee line and went straight over to Abbey Road to see, and experience the feeling of crossing this magical place. These days, the store next to the tube station hands out free maps showing newcomers the way there and a private company is selling merchandise (T-shirts, coffee mugs, keychains etc.) depicting the crossing.
