In the first letter, Hitchcock reintroduces herself "I don't know whether you remember me or not..." and tells of how actress Bettina Cerf introduced them. A following letter reports Hitchcock will be in New York for rehearsals for Violet on August 29th, 1944 and inquires how Bloomer Girl is going. Chatty letters follow during the period in which Hitchcock finished school in Los Angeles with questions such as "I see Joan Caulfield is supposed to do Blue Skies, has that deal fallen through?"
The letters pickup in September 1949 with Hitchcock writing Ms. Holm from Los Angeles seeking her for a play "but with South Pacific on your hands, I can't imagine your having interest in anything else." Another letter that month reports "We loved you in Come to the Stable it was just the sort of acting I always want to cheer ... I really believe there is a future for you in acting."
