Various Items

On April 25, various items that belonged to Brian Epstein were auctioned off - amongst them a four page handwritten letter from Paul.
On April 27 Paul appeared at a benefit dinner in New York which coincided with the US release of "a Garland for Linda." The media wrote a lot of nonsense on a "new Paul" with "short hair" and "wearing a suit." - as if this was new!
On May 4, Paul and Heather (Mills) were seen arm in arm at Heathrow airport on route to New York.
The following week Paul has joined the campaign to ban landmines. ""This is a very serious issue that we should all try to do something to sort out. It's all the more important when you realise more than 80 per cent of victims are women and children."
On May 11, Richard Porter of the London Beatles Fan Club spotted Paul with nearly his entire family, including Heather Mills, nearby his London offices. They were all dressed in suits and nice dresses.
