See his entry in the Oxford DNB. The inscription, which is somewhat grubby and discoloured, is on an irregularly-shaped cutting of a piece of card, roughly 4.5 x 7 cm, laid down on 21.5 x 12 cm mount, on which are also laid down an 8.5 x 12 cm newspaper cutting of a photograph of Beaton, and a 10.5 x 4.5 cm cutting of orange paper with a manuscript biography of Beaton in a shaky hand. Beaton’s autograph reads: ‘Beat wishes / from / Cecil Beaton’. See image.
