Lot 176: MARILYN MONROE FREE ASSOCIATION NOTES
 Four pages torn from an Italian agenda, dating between 1955 and 1956. It is believed that the pages correspond to Monroe's work with Dr. Hohenberg in which she began practicing self-analysis and working on her repressed memories. The notations in pencil jump from one topic to the next, wandering around the physical pages themselves and even passing from one page to the next and then back again. It is difficult to follow, but the topics include examining her childhood need to lie to her teacher, her physical insecurities, self-conscious thoughts of what others think of her drinking, speculation that "Peter" is capable of violence and possibly gay as well as a touching passage about Arthur Miller: "I am so concerned/ about protecting Arthur/ I love him-and he is the/ only person-human being I have/ ever known that I could love not only/ as a man to which I am attracted to practically/ out of my senses about-but he is the only/ person-as another human being that I trust as/ much as myself-because when I do trust my-/ self (about certain things) I do fully, and I/ do about him also." Another revealing passage reads in part, "… fear to touch my own body/ after Buddy (I started to write Bad instead of Buddy-/ slip in writing?)/ because A.I. punished me/ with fear and whipped me-/ ‘The bad part of my body’ she said-/ must never touch myself/ there or let anyone." It is believed that "A.I." refers to Aunt Ida Martin, a foster mother who punished Monroe as a child, possibly after a sexual abuse incident, with the "Buddy" mentioned here.

Lot 189: MARILYN MONROE HANDWRITTEN NOTE
 A handwritten note on unlined paper, annotated “for Kris,” dated September 9, most likely used as a reminder for Monroe to discuss the noted issue with her psychoanalyst, Dr. Marianne Kris. The note reads "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 woman [sic]. This in my teens. In return, I showed her that I was faithful to her. Also written on the note is the passage “Jane’s 10th Birthday on 7th same year,” obviously regarding Jane Miller, Arthur Miller’s daughter, who was born on September 7."

 A single sheet of lined paper from a six-ring agenda, with a draft of a letter written, on two sides, to Monroe's psychoanalyst, Dr. Hohenberg, 1956. The letter skips through many topics and references Monroe's difficulties in breaking ties with her former acting coach, Natasha Lytess, and her optimism in beginning to work with Paula Strasberg. She is also buoyant in her mention of Arthur Miller, stating, "Arthur writes me every day-at/ least it gives me air to/ breathe-I can't get used to the fact/ that he loves me and I keep waiting/ for him to stop loving me-though I/ hope he never will-but I keep telling/ myself-who knows?"

Lot 205: MARILYN MONROE TYPED LETTER TO DR. RALPH GREENSON
 A vintage file copy of a six-page typed letter from Monroe to Dr. Ralph Greenson, the California-based psychiatrist who treated Monroe in the period leading up to her death. This deeply emotional letter, dated March 2, 1961, was written while Monroe was staying at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center for three weeks of recuperation following her stay at New York’s Payne Whitney Psychiatric Clinic. The letter is done as a stream of conscious recollection of Payne Whitney.
Passages in the letter include:
There was no empathy at Payne-Whitney — it had a very bad effect — they asked me after putting me in a 'cell' (I mean cement blocks and all) for very disturbed depressed patients (except I felt I was in some kind of prison for a crime I hadn’t committed. The inhumanity there I found archaic. They asked me why I wasn’t happy there (everything was under lock and key; things like electric lights, dresser drawers, bathrooms, closets, bars concealed on the windows — the doors have windows so patients can be visible all the time, also, the violence and markings still remain on the walls from former patients). I answered: 'Well, I’d have to be nuts if I like it here.'"
I sat on the bed trying to figure if I was given this situation in an acting improvisation what would I do. So I figured, it’s a squeaky wheel that gets the grease. I admit it was a loud squeak but I got the idea from a movie I made once called Don’t Bother to Knock. I picked up a light-weight chair and slammed it, and it was hard to do because I had never broken anything in my life — against the glass intentionally. It took a lot of banging to get even a small piece of glass – so I went over with the glass concealed in my hand and sat quietly on the bed waiting for them to come in. They did, and I said to them 'If you are going to treat me like a nut I’ll act like a nut.' I admit the next thing is corny but I really did it in the movie except it was with a razor blade. I indicated if they didn’t let me out I would harm myself — the furthest thing from my mind at that moment since you know Dr. Greenson I’m an actress and would never intentionally mark or mar myself. I’m just that vain.”
The letter also takes several sentimental turns with Monroe fondly referencing Joe DiMaggio and Yves Montand. Monroe closed the letter with “I think I had better stop because you have other things to do but thanks for listening for a while. Marilyn M.”

Three unlined oversize pages containing answers to a reporter's interview questions in preparation for a press interview. She writes her numbered responses in blue ink and pencil. Answer number 11 explains her stay at the Payne Whitney clinic, writing, "Payne Whitney gives me a pain/ It was obviously an error of judgment to place me in Payne Whit. and the doctor/ who recommended realized it and tried to rectify it. What my condition warranted/ was the rest and care I got [at] Presbyterian Hospital." Number 19 states, "[M]y sleep depends on my state of satisfaction and that varies with my life-my dreams/ are too intimate to be revealed in public/ My nightmare is the H Bomb."

Noyes Real Estate Company dated November 15, 1961, addressed to Miss Marjorie Stengel, Monroe’s secretary, at Marilyn Monroe Productions, Incorporated, 444 East 57th Street, New York, stating, “I am enclosing herewith Photostats which I had made of the drawings adding a stairway which would include all or half of the third floor with the duplex garden apartments. These sketches may be somewhat confusing, but I could easily explain them if you would like to have me do so,” together with six Photostat copies of original architectural drawings for the redesign of an apartment located at 241 East 61st Street in New York. The drawings go into great detail as to the redesign of the apartment, with space for an art studio and specific notes stating, “This could be another bedroom or boudoir, or health studio with 'massage' table, 'chaise lounge,' private living room…or…with numerous 'closets.'”
Interestingly, these architectural drawings from November 1961 imply that Monroe was considering relocating from the home she shared with husband Arthur Miller on East 57th Street to a three-story apartment on East 61st Street. Monroe and Miller divorced earlier in 1961. Even more interesting is the fact that, as Monroe considered a new apartment in New York City near the end of 1961, she made an offer on January 12, 1962, on a house in Brentwood, California. She moved into 12305 Fifth Helena Drive in Brentwood in March 1962.

I bless her for this gift, and I write it so that she may have from me the only unique thing I know how to make. I bless her, I owe her the discovery of my soul." Although the note is undated, Miller refers to Marilyn Monroe as his wife to be, indicating that it was written prior to their marriage on June 29, 1956. Although this dedication did not appear in any of Miller's books it was possibly intended to be used in A View from the Bridge, which Miller was rewriting as a two-act play during his courtship with Monroe. Because Miller was not officially divorced until June 1956 it is possible that the dedication was not used due to timing.

The letter instructs Hedda to order more stationery for Monroe from the Chase Press at 247 Park Avenue in New York, "... if the information under 'Stationery' in the telephone book is right." Redmond continues, "I would think about 250 sheets and envelopes would suffice for sometime, but usually it costs very little more to get 500 of each... (I just has a call from Pat Newcomb for 50 sheets of each and that doesn't leave much more on hand in case she again asks me for that amount." The box of envelopes included in this lot is half full and indeed was a box of 500, quite possibly the very order mentioned in this letter written less than four months before Monroe's death.
