#685 - Marilyn Monroe Estimate: $10,000+

Monroe prepares for her therapy session—"Mother always tried to get me to 'go out' as though she felt I were too unadventurous. She wanted me even to show a cruelty toward women"

Intriguing handwritten notes by Marilyn Monroe, unsigned, one page, 5 x 8, September 9, no year but likely 1957. In full: "Remember, somehow, how mother always tried to get me to 'go out' as though she felt I were too unadventurous. She wanted me even to show a cruelty toward women. This in my teens. In return, I showed her that I was faithful to her." At the top of the page Monroe adds "For Kris, Sept 9, Janes 10th Birthday on 7th same year." In fine condition, with scattered light creasing, and intersecting folds. The notes along the top refer to two women who recently entered Monroe's life—her psychoanalyst Dr. Marianne Kris, whom Monroe had begun seeing after leaving Dr. Margaret Hohenberg in the spring of 1957, and Jane Miller, Monroe's stepdaughter with husband Arthur Miller. A fascinating handwritten note from Monroe, who no doubt used this sheet as a reminder for an upcoming appointment with Kris.
