DS, one page, 8.5 x 11, August 4, 1954. Typed on Associated Booking Corp. letterhead, Holiday confirms an advance payment: "This is to acknowledge that I Billie Holiday have received a check in the amount of $100.00 as an advance which is to be charged to my account. This advance plus all others previously made will be repaid to Associated Booking Corp. by means of appropriate deductions against all engagements to be played." Signed neatly at the conclusion by Billie Holiday. In very good to fine condition, with light soiling and overall creasing. The year 1954 was an eventful one for Holiday, who released her self-titled third album and embarked on her first European tour as part of a Leonard Feather package, visiting Sweden, Germany, Netherlands, Paris, and Switzerland.
