Berniece recalls Monroe telling her that "The first time I saw my father, I was lying flat on my back in the hospital. I looked at him and I studied his face and features, and I saw that mother had told me the truth, that he was my father." Considering the fact that this is a get-well card, coupled with the fact Monroe stated to her half-sister Berniece that she first met her father when she was hospitalized, Gifford himself clearly hand delivered this card to Monroe when he visited her during one of her hospital stays. Given the fact that they ostensibly had no relationship prior to this one and only known meeting, it is highly unlikely that Gifford traveled across the country from his home in Hemet, CA to visit Monroe during one of her NYC hospital stays. Based upon all available information, the visit most likely occurred during one of her many hospitalizations in Los Angeles.
It has been widely reported that Monroe unsuccessfully attempted to contact her father by telephone many times over the years. Monroe persisted visiting the town of Hemet, California in an attempt to locate him which is confirmed by numerous locals reporting Marilyn Monroe Spottings in Hemet. It is believed that Gifford did not want to upset his wife and children by allowing Monroe to be part of his life.
This card is the only known material artifact that establishes any connection or communication between Gifford and his famous daughter. Monroe's mother Gladys dated Gifford in 1925, he was at the time her supervisor at RKO pictures. While working for him as a film negative cutter, Gladys became pregnant and gave birth to a daughter on June 1, 1926. Norma Jeane was Gladys third child. Although Gladys registered the surname Mortenson on Norma Jeane's birth certificate, using the name of her ex-husband instead of Gifford, it has been assumed for decades that Gifford was actually Marilyn Monroe's father.
Gifford was finally definitively proven to be Monroe's father through DNA testing in 2022. Although this card includes no warm salutation from the man that was indeed her father, it further complicates our understanding of the relationship, or what was believed to be the complete absence of a relationship with arguably the most important male figure in Monroe's life. Previous scholarship recounts Monroe's attempts to contact her father resulting in only bitter rejection and a broken heart, yet this card supports Berniece Miracles first-hand account and it is proof that he reached out to her in a time of need.

An original gouache and ink on paper costume sketch from the production of Joseph L. Mankiewicz's classic film All About Eve (20th Century Fox, 1950) by Edith Head.

Davis appears on-screen with Marilyn Monroe, in a breakthrough performance, wearing the gown. Head won the Oscar for Best Costume Design, Black-and-White for this Oscar winning Best Picture; Davis was nominated for Best Actress. The sketch is faintly penciled "for Bette Davis" to the right side, and initialed, possibly by Mankiewicz, near the right bottom hem.

Lot 258: MARILYN MONROE: MEDICAL FILE
A medical file pertaining to cosmetic surgery performed on Marilyn Monroe. The file includes facial X-rays and doctors' notes from the office of Dr. Michael Gurdin, M.D., and the X-ray office of Drs. Conti and Steinberg. Dr. Gurdin's chart on Monroe begins on July 14, 1958, and lists the patient as Marilyn Miller with addresses in New York and Los Angeles.
The chief complaint listed is "chin deformity" and goes on to give a medical history that begins in 1950 and ends in 1962. Listed are a 1956 bout of neutropenia in England; 1957 ectopic pregnancy in New York; and 1950 cartilage implant in chin that the doctor observed had slowly begun to dissolve. Those with knowledge of the implant procedure have explained that this was done in association with a tip rhinoplasty, a procedure involving the tip of Monroe's nose only, not the bones.
The last entry is dated June 7, 1962, and reports a fall at between 2 and 3 a.m. resulting in swelling and tenderness of the nose. Monroe was brought to Dr. Gurdin by her psychoanalyst, Dr. Ralph Greenson. Monroe was referred to Drs. Conti and Steinberg for X-rays. For her visit to the radiologists she was given the alias "Miss Joan Newman," and that name appears on the paperwork with Monroe's Brentwood home address.
Six X-rays are in the folder: a frontal facial bones X-ray; a smaller X-ray that is a composite of the right and left sides of her nasal bones; and four small dental X-rays into the roof of Monroe's mouth, looking upward toward the nasal bones. The conclusion, written by Dr. Conti and dated June 7, 1962, is that there was no damage to Monroe's nose due to her fall. A more recent evaluation of the X-rays indicates a very minute hairline fracture of this bone. Monroe had turned 36 less than a week earlier. On June 8, the following day, Monroe was fired from the film Something's Got to Give (20th Century Fox, 1962). 9 x 12 inches

Two letters with dates in 1952 and 1953 are from an aspiring songwriter and singer by the name of Mrs. John H. Spurgeon. Another letter is from Harold Mirisch dated May 7, 1959. Another letter on letterhead from The First Baptist Church dated December 4, 1958 is from a man named Bill Lennon, requesting Marilyn's permission to write to the TV show "What's My Line?" and list his occupation as secretary to Marilyn Monroe. Included is a very direct letter to Lennon in response, reading in part, "Miss Monroe would not under any circumstances permit the use of her name in any misrepresentation." Also included, a carbon-copy of a letter addressed to "John" dated February 1, 1960 (likely designer John Moore) asking if he'd been advised by the Railway Express Company about a message left at the Beverly Hills Hotel for Marilyn that read, "The dress you expected from Talmack was destroyed in a plane fire." Handwritten annotations on the letter list a "Mr. Clemens, Head of Air Department," and a phone number for the claims department, not in Monroe's handwriting. Overall a very interesting look at the types of issues Monroe dealt with on a daily basis.

From the personal files of Marilyn Monroe: A one-page typed letter from Ruth Edens, apparently an acquaintance of Monroe's from her childhood, dated August 24, 1954, and reading in part, "I have long intended to write you this letter because I have particularly wanted to say that when you used to visit me at my Balboa Island cottage, you were a shy and charming child whose appeal, it seems to me, must have reached the hearts of many people. I could never seem to get you to say much to me, but I loved having you come in and I missed your doing so after you'd gone away. I wondered about you many times and was delighted when I discovered you in the films. I hope the stories in the magazines which say you felt yourself unloved throughout your childhood, are merely press-agentry. In any case, I want you to know that I, for one, was truly fond of you and I'm proud of you for having developed enough grit to struggle through to success." The letter also states, "I hope you are getting much happiness out of life, little Marian [sic]. I saw so much that was ethereal in you when you were a little girl that I fell sure you are not blind to life's spiritual side. May all that is good and best come your way!? The letter is signed "Sincerely, Ruth Edens." 9 x 11 inches

Lot 288: MARILYN MONROE: ARTHUR MILLER HANDWRITTEN BOOK DEDICATION
A single piece of lined paper torn from a spiral-bound notebook, heavily stained, containing a notation in Miller's hand reading "This book is being written out of the courage, the widened view of life, the awareness of love and beauty, given to me by my love, my wife-to-be, my Marilyn. 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. 8.5 x 11 inches

The first page was published in the book Fragments and contains references to "The Sleeping Prince," an early production title for Monroe's film The Prince and the Showgirl, dating these writings to 1956.

She instructs herself to make a list of tasks and work on exercises, which perhaps explains the cryptic writings on the second page that did not appear in Fragments, reading in full, "From Ridding partly/ T Nautiousness [sic]/ Place/ personalization (A)/ weariness/ (J)/ (Ar)." 8.5 x 11 inches

Lot 434: MARILYN MONROE: PERSONALLY ANNOTATED "SOMETHING'S GOT TO GIVE" SCREENPLAY AND PAGES
A Something's Got To Give (20th Century Fox, 1962) mimeographed screenplay by Nunnally Johnson, 149 pages, blue cover dated March 29, 1962 reading "Final Confidential For Planning Purposes Only." The script, marked final, also dated March 29, 1962, contains notations in Monroe's hand throughout in pencil and green ink on 18 pages. Some of the notations are from Monroe's work with a Swedish dialect coach.
In addition to these notations, two typed pages of Monroe's dialogue are bound between pages 107 and 108 of the mimeographed script. These two pages contain Monroe's dialogue from one of the few scenes captured on film, with her extensive pencil notations. Raw footage of Monroe performing with Tippy the cocker spaniel and the children in this scene exists, and Monroe's notations are evident in the footage. The top of the page reads "Real Thought/ Mental Relaxation/ substitute children - B & J if necessary/ feeling - place the pain where it is not in the brow." B & J likely refers to Arthur Miller's children Bobby and Jane. Another notation next to one of Monroe's lines of dialogue reads simply "Mona Lisa," which does in fact mirror the expression she uses when delivering this line. Even the exaggerated "Ahhhhh---" that Monroe does at the beginning of each take in the raw footage is written on the page in her hand, reading in full, "Ahhh--Look for the light.?
The notations throughout the script also include notes in an unidentified hand criticizing certain points of the story, including "Too Harsh," "Naggy," "Dull" and many other comments. Overall, the notations in both the script and on the dialogue pages used by Monroe to film the scene with the children and Tippy the dog tell the story of a tedious script writing and editing process. Her dialogue notations are a revealing window into her process in performing some of the last scenes she ever recorded on film. 9.5 x 12 x 1 inches

Lot 451: MARILYN MONROE: DOG-RELATED POSTHUMOUS CORRESPONDENCE
An undated typed letter from Mrs. Edward Herdan of Los Angeles that reads:
"To whom it may concern: I was greatly taken aback when I saw the pet of Marilyn's in a picture with her. We were forced to put our pet to sleep on account of old age recently and she was a double of this little dog. We have been looking with grieving hearts for several months now, to find one that resembled our Shaggsy, but all in vain. If it were at all possible to get the dog we could give it an excellent home. Dr. Christenson of the Hollywood Cat and Dog Hospital was our Vet for fourteen years. Hope this request receives some consideration. Sincerely, Mrs. Ed Herdan."
Included is a copy of a letter from Inez Melson, Monroe's former business manager, dated September 4, 1962, reading:
"Dear Mrs. Herdan, I hope you will understand that I have not answered your kind letter about "Moff" before this because of the pressure of matters involving the affairs of Marilyn. I know how you must feel about your little "Shaggsy" and it would be wonderful if it were possible to send "Moff" to live with you. However, you will understand that her sister's dearest wish is to have him and I hope in due time to be able to send him to live with her. Unfortunately, in due process of law, even little "Moff" is a part of Marilyn's personal effects and thus, he has to wait. It grieves me greatly to refuse so many kind people and I only wish that I could grant the desire of each good person who would love "Moff" as his mistress loved him." The letter is signed, "Sincerely yours, Inez Melson, Administratrix of the Estate of Marilyn Monroe."
Frank Sinatra gifted the dog to Monroe in 1961. She named him Maf as a comic reference to Sinatra's mafia connections. Interestingly, people within Monroe's inner circle appear to be unaware of the correct spelling of the dog's name. Written correspondence reflects use of the names "Maff" and "Moff."

06/02/1948 - Lettre de Norma Jeane à Berniece

Lettre de 4 pages du 06 février 1948 (tampon de la poste) écrite par Norma Jeane (Marilyn Monroe) à sa demie-soeur Berniece Miracle, qui vivait à Orlando en Floride (USA). Marilyn explique qu'elle est sur le point de déménager et n'a pas encore sa nouvelle adresse. Au dos de l'enveloppe d'envoi, son adresse imprimée au verso était "11348 Nebraska Ave., West Los Angeles, Californie", où elle vivait avec Tante Ana Lower; elle a barré le nom de la rue pour y inscrire à l'encre bleue l'adresse de "1711 North Stanley Avenue" en Californie.

1948-02-06-letter_from_NJ_to_Berniece-enveloppe-1 
1948-02-06-letter_from_NJ_to_Berniece-enveloppe-2  

Letter of 4 pages dated February 06, 1948 (date of postmark) written by Norma Jeane (Marilyn Monroe) to her half-sister Berniece Miracle, who lived in Orlando, Florida (USA). Marilyn explains that she is about to move and doesn't have yet her new address. On the reverse mailing envelope, her address printed on the back was "11348 Nebraska Ave., West Los Angeles, California", where she lived with Aunt Ana Lower; she crossed out the street name to write in blue ink the address of "1711 North Stanley Avenue" in California.


 En ce début d'année 1948, les studios de la Fox n'ont pas renouvellé son contrat (signé au 24 août 1946, le contrat s'est arrêté au 25 août 1947 et n'a pas été reconduit). Marilyn continue à passer des castings et à poser pour des photos publicitaires, mais sa situation stagne. Néanmoins, elle indique avoir signé un nouveau contrat * faisant référence à celui signé avec les studios de la Columbia, qui s'officialisera le 9 mars 1948, mais qui est donc bien en négociation au moment où elle rédige cette lettre. 
Le film "Dangerous Years" dont elle se réfère en fin de lettre (pour lequel elle fut "prêtée" par la Fox au Sol Wurtzel Productions), est sorti en salles américaines le 7 décembre 1947. Elle y tient un petit rôle (celui d'une serveuse), d'où le fait qu'elle mentionne à Berniece de bien ouvrir l'oeil si elle va voir le film.
La lettre montre donc que Marilyn est alors bien occupée en cette période -entre son nouveau contrat et son déménagement- et qu'elle manque de temps pour tenir une correspondance suivie.
Elle évoque aussi leur mère (Gladys Monroe), dont elle ne souhaite pas entretenir de liens, sans pour autant la rejeter, car elle fonde le projet de pouvoir l'aider dès que sa situation financière le permettra.
Elle prend aussi des nouvelles de Paris (le mari de Berniece) et de sa nièce Mona Rae, montrant ainsi l'amour qu'elle porte envers sa soeur et sa famille.
On apprend aussi que durant cette période, elle a un chien (un cocker blond) - peut être Ruffles, un cocker avec qui elle posa en photos pour la Fox (une séance photos sur la plage en 1947).

At the beginning of the year 1948, the Fox studios did not renew her contract (signed on August 24, 1946, the contract ended on August 25, 1947 and was not renewed). Marilyn continues to go to castings and pose for publicity photos, but her situation is stagnating. Nevertheless, she indicates that she has signed a new contract * referring to the one signed with Columbia studios, which will become official on March 9, 1948, but which is therefore in negotiation at the time of writing this letter.
The film "Dangeous Years" to which she refers at the end of the letter (for which she was been "lent" by Fox to Sol Wurtzel Productions), was released in American cinemas on December 7, 1947. She plays a small role in it (that of a waitress), hence the fact that she mentions to Berniece to keep an eye out if she goes to see her in the film.
The letter therefore shows that Marilyn is then very busy during this period -between her new contract and her move- and that she lacks the time to keep a regular correspondence.
She also mentions their mother (Gladys Monroe), with whom she doesn't wish to maintain a relation, without however rejecting her, because she is planning to be able to help her as soon as her financial situation allows it.
She also asks from Paris (Berniece's husband) and her niece Mona Rae, showing her love for her sister and her family.
We also learn that during this period, she has a dog (a blond cocker spaniel) - perhaps Ruffles, a cocker spaniel with whom she posed in photos for Fox (a photo session on the beach in 1947).

Traduction de la lettre:

Ma très chère sœur.
J'ai commencé au moins une douzaine de lettres pour toi, ma chère, mais quelque chose semble toujours interférer pour m'empêcher de les terminer. Mais je pense souvent à toi et je me demande comment tu vas et si tu es heureuse. J'espère que tout va bien pour toi et ta famille. J'aimerais vous voir tous. J'ai failli faire un voyage en Floride mais je viens de signer un nouveau contrat et je ne peux pas m'éloigner en ce moment *.
Demain, je déménage dans un appartement très mignon. Bien sûr, je redoute le matin, mais je devrais me donner un coup de pied parce que je ne peux qu'imaginer ce que cela doit être pour vous lorsque vous déménagez car vous êtes trois. Cependant, ce que je veux vous dire, c'est qu'il y a de la place pour vous si jamais vous voulez faire un voyage ici, vous pouvez rester avec moi.
Tout ce que j'ai pour compagnie, c'est un adorable petit chiot cocker blond -  ok c'est juste un petit ange.
Je n'habite plus avec tante Ana depuis presque un an maintenant. Elle est vraiment adorable et bonne avec moi mais il n'y a tout simplement pas de place pour moi là-bas en plus c'est bien d'avoir mon propre chez moi. Dès que je peux, je veux acheter une petite maison, mais c'est un peu loin en ce moment.
Je n'ai pas de nouvelles de Mère et je ne lui écris pas, en fait tout ce que je sais, c'est qu'elle est quelque part dans l'Oregon, où - je n'en ai aucune idée. Elle et moi ne semblons pas être très proches et ce n'est la faute de personne. J'aimerais que ce soit différent mais un jour, j'espère pouvoir l'aider un peu, en ce moment, c'est plutôt difficile pour moi, avec ou sans contrat. Mais tout se passe à merveille donc je n'ai vraiment rien à redire.
J'ai quelques trucs que j'aimerais t'envoyer si tu le veux.
Comment va Mona Rae ? C'est la plus mignonne des petites filles, je suis folle d'elle.
J'espère que Paris va bien là-bas, souhaite-lui le meilleur de ma part.
S'il te plaît, dis-lui que je talonnerais tout le monde sauf ma propre sœur.
Merci Berniece pour votre joli cadeau de Noël, c'était très gentil de votre part.
Je t'enverrai des photos si tu veux en avoir.
J'aimerais bien te voir, j'espère que tu m'écrira bientôt.
Je t'écrirai à nouveau après mon déménagement et te donnerai ma nouvelle adresse.
Tendrement,
Norma Jeane
P.S. "Dangerous Years" se joue encore là-bas. Je suis dedans mais pour l'amour du ciel, ne cligne pas des yeux, tu pourrais me rater.

Letter transcription:

My Dearest Sister.
I've started at least a dozen letters to you dear but something always seems to come up to keep me from finishing them. But I do think of you often and wonder how you are and if you are happy. I hope eveything is fine with you and your family. I would love to see all of you. I almost took a trip to Fla. but I've just signed a new contract and can't get away right now *.
Tomorrow I'm moving to a very cute apt. Of course I dread morning but I should kick because I can just imagine what it must be for you when you move for there are three of you. However what want to tell you is there is room for you if you ever want to take a trip out here you can stay with me.
All I have for company is a darling little blond cocker puppy - ok he's just a little angel.
I havent' lived with Aunt Ana for almost a year now. She is very so cute and good to me but ther just isn't room for me there besides it's nice to have my own place. When I can I want to buy a little house however that's a little ways off right now.
I haven't heard from Mother nor do I write her, in fact all I know is that she is somewhere in Oregon, where - I have no idea. She and I can't seem to be very close due to no one's fault. I wish it could be different but some day I hope to be able to help her out a little, right now it's rather difficult for me, contract or no contract. But everything is coming along wonderfully so I've nothing to complain about really.
I have a few things I would like to send you if you want them.
How is Mona Rae ? She is the sweetest cutest little girl, I'm crazy about her.
I hope Paris is doing all right down there give him my best.
Please tell him I would high heel everyone else in the world but my own sister.
Thank you Berniece for your lovely Christmas gift it was very sweet of you.
I'll send you some pictures if you'd like to have some.
I sure would love to see you I hope you will write to me soon.
I'll write again after I move and give you my new address.
Lovingly
Norma Jeane
P.S. Has "Dangerous Years" played down there yet. I'm in it but for heaven's sakes don't blink your eyes you might miss me in it.

Lot 0952: PERSONAL HANDWRITTEN ACTORS STUDIO CLASS NOTES
A sheet of Marilyn Monroe's personal notes from her acting classes with Lee Strasberg at the Actors Studio in New York, NY, handwritten in pencil on stationery from The Towers of The Waldorf-Astoria in 1955 (Monroe took Actors Studio classes with Strasberg between April and September 1955).
The opening salutation and start of the letter "Dear Art" has been scratched out. The notes begin with Monroe quoting something said by Strasberg: "I want you all to know that this exercise went on for/ 1/2 hour and her concentration did not/ give way or slip once-and Marilyn there/ will be very few times ever on the/ stage where it will be/ necessary to keep/ such a concentration/ for one half hour/ straight." Monroe then asks herself, "Why did it/ mean so much to me."
On the back she continues to ruminate about class, writing, "Strasberg/ it makes me (him he said) feel badly (and sadly) for you that you do/ things out of fear/ You must start to do things out of strength-/ (my question: where do I get the strength)-he said-by not looking for strength/but only looking & seeking tecnical [sic] ways and means."
This presents a fascinating demonstration of how seriously Monroe took her formal acting training in New York.
This document was reproduced in the book Fragments: Poems, Intimate Notes, Letters by Marilyn Monroe, Edited by Stanley Buchthal and Bernard Comment (Farrar, Straus, and Giroux, New York, 2010).

Lot 0953: HANDWRITTEN ACTING EXERCISE DIALOGUE AND NOTES
A single sheet of lined yellow paper with dialogue and additional notes written out in pencil in Monroe's hand. This document was likely part of an acting exercise.
The dialogue reads:
"Where did he go? He told you I know he did/ If you'd only have given me a little longer - He was in love with me - we'd have been married you didn't want me to have him from the beginning/ you wouldn't let me wear those pretty things/ Even when I told you about the doll - you/ sent those people around/ He died! But he said/ he came back - Tell/ Me - tell me -."
The front and back of the page is then covered with small performance notes, including:
"The thought focus on partner not on word then let go of word"; "don't do with words & voice"; "Let go everything elastic keep the pick up lay on the horse"; and "to be as relaxed let go of mouth speech thought," among many others.

14/01/1945 - Lettre de Norma Jeane à Grace Goddard

Lettre de 4 pages du 14 janvier 1945 (datée par erreur en 1944) écrite par Norma Jeane Dougherty (Marilyn Monroe) à Grace McKee Goddard, qui était partie vivre avec son mari Ervin 'Doc' Goddard et la fille de celui-ci Bebe Goddard à Huntington, dans l'Etat de Virginie.
Norma Jeane n'a que 18 ans, mariée depuis deux ans et demie avec Jim Dougherty souvent absent (il est engagé dans la Marine marchande), et elle se sent seule: sans doute est-ce pour cette raison qu'elle s'est payée un manteau, alors qu'elle ne gagne pas beaucoup d'argent. Elle fait aussi des cadeaux à Grace puisqu'elle lui demande si le peignoir est à sa taille.
Elle raconte aussi à Grace que l'usine où elle travaille, Radioplane, a congédié (temporairement, pour deux semaines), l'ensemble des ouvriers et ouvrières (sans leur verser de salaire), certains étant même licensié définitivement.
Elle parle de son retour de l'Est, faisant ainsi référence à sa visite aux Goddard (Doc et Bebe) en Virginie et sa demie-soeur Berniece à Détroit à l'automne 1944.
Il semble que Norma Jeane porte beaucoup d'affection envers Doc Goddard, elle l'appelle "Papa" dans sa lettre.
On ressent surtout l'isolement de la jeune Norma Jeane, terminant sa lettre par son espoir de revoir les Goddard revenir en Californie.

Letter of 4 pages in January 14, 1945 (mistakenly dated 1944) written by Norma Jeane Dougherty (Marilyn Monroe) to Grace McKee Goddard, who had gone to live with her husband Ervin 'Doc' Goddard and his daughter Bebe Goddard in Huntington, Virginia.
Norma Jeane is only 18 years old, married for two and a half years to Jim Dougherty, who is often absent (he is engaged in the Merchant Marine), and she feels alone: ​​no doubt this is why she paid for a coat, although she doesn't earn much money. She also gives Grace gifts because she asks her if the robe is at the good size.
She also tells to Grace that the factory where she works, Radioplane, has dismissed (temporarily, for two weeks), all the workers (without paying them a salary), some of them being even definitively dismissed.
She talks about her return from the East, thus referring to her visit to the Goddards (Doc and Bebe) in Virginia and her half-sister Berniece in Detroit in the fall of 1944.
It seems that Norma Jeane has a lot of affection for Doc Goddard, she calls him "Dad" in her letter.
We especially feel the isolation of young Norma Jeane, ending her letter with her hope of seeing the Goddards back in California.

 Traduction de la lettre:

Ma très chère Grace,
Je suis désolée de ne pas avoir écrit plus tôt, mais honnêtement, j'ai été très occupée. En ce moment, j'ai deux semaines de vacances. (sans être payée).
Jimmie n'est pas encore rentré mais s'attend à être à la maison à tout moment. Il m'a envoyé 100 $ pour Noël alors j'en ai mis un peu plus et je suis maintenant l'heureuse propriétaire d'un manteau de singe Gold Coast. Oh c'est tout simplement magnifique ! J'ai obtenu la meilleure qualité possible parce que je pensais que je pourrais aussi bien obtenir quelque chose qui durerait. (Je ne veux pas que tout le monde sache que ça a coûté autant que ça le devait au départ, c'est mon affaire, tu ne crois pas ?
Tout le monde dit qu'ils ne peuvent pas comprendre à quel point j'ai changé depuis que je suis revenue de l'Est. Au travail, ils disent tous que je suis pleine de vie, de peps et de vitalité. Je n'ai pas travaillé très dur, je me suis juste laissé aller, mais j'ai quand même terminé tout mon travail. Radioplane Company a licencié près de la moitié de ses travailleurs. Mais je suis toujours là bien que je sois en vacances maintenant, comme tout le monde dans mon département, ce n'est que pour deux semaines.
S'il te plaît envoie-moi le livre d'anglais et de grammaire, tu avais dit que tu le ferais.
J'espère que tu as aimé ton peignoir. Était-ce la bonne taille ? As-tu mis des chaussons pour aller avec ?
Je suis contente que tu ne travailles pas chez Wildings parce que tu travaillais juste trop dur. J'espère que tu te reposes beaucoup. S'il te plaît, donne mon affection à Papa et Bebe. Vous me manquez certainement tous.
Dan Hill est vraiment génial, je n'ai pas eu beaucoup de temps pour le voir. Mais je l'aime beaucoup.
J'ai hâte de voir Papa en février. Chaque fois que je vois Dan, il n'arrête pas de demander "Quand est-ce que "Doc" revient ?"
Aujourd'hui, je suis allée à l'église et Mme Dougherty m'a accompagnée. Mon Dieu, je peux à peine attendre que vous reveniez tous ici, j'espère que ce sera bientôt.
Tout mon amour,
Norma Jeane,
PS j'écrirai plus tard

Letter transcription:

My dearest Grace,
I'm sorry I havn't written sooner but honestly I've been so busy. At the present time I'm having a two weeks vacation. (without pay).
Jimmie hasn't come home yet but expects to be home most any time. He sent me $100.00 for Christmas so I put some more with it and I am now the happy owner of a Gold Coast monkey coat. Oh its simply beautiful! I got the finest quality obtainable because I thought I might as well get something that would last. (I don't want everyone to know that it cost as much as it did in the first place its my own business, don't you think ?
Everyone says they can't get over how much I've changed since I've come back from the East. At work they all say I'm full of life, pep and vitality. I havn't been working very hard, just sort of taking it easy but I still get all of my work finished. Radioplane Company laxed almost half of its workers off. But I'm still there although I'm Having a vacation now so is everyone in my dept, its only for two weeks.
Please send me the English and Grammar book, you said you would.
I hope you liked your robe. Was it the right size? Did you get slippers to go with it ?
I'm glad you are not working at wildings because you were just working too hard. I hope you are getting a lot of rest.
Please give Daddy and Bebe my love. I certainly do miss all of you.
Dan Hill is really swell, I havn't had much time to see him. But I do like him very much.
I can hardly wait to see Daddy in February. Every time I see Dan he keeps asking "When is "Doc" coming back ?"
Today I went to church and Mrs. Dougherty went with me.
Golly I can hardly wait until all of you move back here, I hope it will be soon.
All my love,
Norma Jeane,
P.S. I shall write later

25/09/1938 - Lettre de Oncle Art à Norma Jeane

Lettre dactylographiée datée du 25 septembre 1938, sur du papier à lettres à en-tête "International Correspondence Schools", écrite par  "Oncle Art" à Norma Jeane, âgée alors de 12 ans et vivait chez "Tante" Ana Lower (sur Nebraska Avenue, à Los Angeles).
Oncle Art et Tante Allis vivent à San José, en Californie. Ils semblent appartenir à la famille de Grace Goddard et de sa tante, Ana Lower; ils se surnomment eux-mêmes "Oncle" et "Tante" pour Norma Jeane, et semblent bien la connaître par les mots d'affection employés dans la lettre. Ils font référence à leur chien Trinket, dont on peut supposer qu'il est adoré par Norma Jeane.

Typed letter dated September 25, 1938, on "International Correspondence Schools" letterhead, written by "Uncle Art" to Norma Jeane, then 12 years old and living with "Aunt" Ana Lower (on Nebraska Avenue , in Los Angeles).
Uncle Art and Aunt Allis live in San Jose, California. They appear to be relatives of Grace Goddard and her aunt, Ana Lower; they call themselves "Uncle" and "Aunt" for Norma Jeane, and seem to know her well by the words of affection employed in the letter. They refer to their dog Trinket, whom one may assume was adored by Norma Jeane.

1938-09-25-Letter_from_uncle_art_aunt_allis_to_NJ-1 

Traduction de la lettre:

Notre douce Norma Jean :

Je t'ai promis une lettre, et j'essaie toujours de tenir mes promesses. Etre très attentif à tenir sa promesse est nécessaire à la construction d'un bon caractère, ne penses-tu pas ? Cependant, dans ce cas, tenir ma promesse procure un réel plaisir plutôt que l'accomplissement d'un devoir. V

Tu as appris par nos lettres à tante Ana notre voyage ici et notre nouvelle maison. Nous sommes tous les deux en bonne santé et de bonne humeur, et très heureux de tout. Dieu a été très bon avec nous, et Il en sera ainsi. Trinket a plus de peps que je ne l'ai jamais vue démontrer et est très satisfaite de tout. Il y a un beau parc en diagonale au coin de chez nous où elle peut se défouler sur l'herbe fraîche et verte à sa guise. Elle fait de nombreuses promenades, et il y a des gâteaux pour chiens spéciaux pour elle.

Hier matin, nous sommes allés à San Francisco et, après une conférence avec mes associés, nous avons traversé le pont de la baie de San Francisco. Chérie, c'est la plus grosse chose que j'ai jamais vue à côté de ton oncle Doc Goddard. C'était une belle journée claire et depuis le pont, nous pouvions voir le Golden Gate, la prison fédérale sur l'île d'Alcastraz où sont détenus les prisonniers gouvernementaux les plus difficiles, l'université d'État de Berkeley et toutes les villes autour de la baie de San Francisco. Nous pourrions contempler le parc des expositions du monde - ils l'appellent l'île au trésor - et certains des bâtiments sont déjà terminés. La foire aura lieu l'année prochaine, tu sais. Et c'est l'un des voyages où nous voulons t'emmener avec tante Ana si vous venez nous rendre visite l'année prochaine. Vous apprécierez tout cela, j'en suis sûr.

C'est une belle ville de 85 000 habitants. Ce matin, dimanche, nous sommes allés en voiture dans le quartier où résident les riches - le district de Hester, je pense que c'est ainsi que ta tante Allis l'appelait. Mais même les pauvres ici gardent leurs jardins propres, remplis de pelouse verte et de fleurs. Le pays environnant est le plus beau, les collines sont parsemées de chênes, et dans les vallées, il y a des miles ou des vergers et des fermes maraîchères. Nous sommes ravis de tout.

Maintenant, ma chère, écris-nous et dis-nous comment tu te débrouilles à l'école, et comment tout se passe là-bas. Je suis sûr que tu es heureuse parce que tout le monde là-bas t'aime et veut que tu sois heureux.

Tante Allis se joint à moi dans l'amour et les meilleurs vœux.

Affectueusement vôtre,
Oncle Art

Letter transcription:

Our Sweet Norma Jean:

I promised you a letter, and I always try to keep my promises. To be very careful to keep one's promise is necessary to the building of a good character, don't you think so ? However, in this case, keeping my promise provides real pleasure rather than the performance of a duty.

You have learned from our letters to Aunt Ana of our trip up here, and of our new home. We are both in fine health and spirits, and very happy over everything. God has been very good to us, and He will let Him. Trinket has more pep than I ever saw her demonstrate, and is highly pleased over everything. There is a beautiful park diagonally across the corner from where we live where she can romp over the cool, green grass to her heart's content. She is having many rides, and that is special dog cakes to her.

Yesterday morning we went to San Francisco, and after a conference with my business associates we drove over the San Francisco Bay bridge. Honey, that's the dangdest, biggest thing I ever saw next to your Uncle Doc Goddard. It was a beautiful, clear day, and from the bridge we could see the Golden Gate, The federal prison on Alcastras Island where they keep the thoughest government prisoners, the State University at Berkeley, and all the cities around San Francisco Bay. We could look right down upon the world's Fair grounds - they call it Treasure Island - and some of the buildings are already finished. The fair will be held next year, you know. And this is one of the trips we want to take you and Aunt Ana on if you come to visit us next year. You will enjoy it all, I am sure.

This is a beautiful city of 85,000 population. This morning, Sunday, we drove out into the section where the wealthy reside - the Hester District, I think your Aunt Allis called it. But even the poor up here keep their yards neat and filled with green lawn and flowers. The surrounding country is most beautiful, the rolling hills are dotted with oak trees, and in the valleys are miles or orchards and truck farms. We are delighted with everything.

Now, Dear, write and tell us how you are getting along in school, and how everything is going down there. I am sure you are happy bevause everyone there loves you, and wants you to be happy.

Aunt Allis joins me in love and best wishes.

Fondly Yours,
Uncle Art


Oncle Art écrira d'autres lettres à Norma Jeane pendant l'année 1939 dans lesquelles il l'appelle "Petite chérie" et "Nous envoyons tous de l'amour à notre petite fille." Ces correspondances pleines de tendresse montre que malgré les difficultés liées à son enfance sans parents, Norma Jeane était tout de même entourée de personnes attentionnés, soucieux de son bien être.

Uncle Art will write other letters to Norma Jeane during the year 1939 in which he calls her "Little Sweetheart" and "We all send love to our little girl"These correspondences full of tenderness show that despite the difficulties related to her childhood without parents, Norma Jeane was still surrounded by caring people, concerned about her well-being.

Traduction de la lettre:
Jeudi.
Ma très chère Cathy,
merci pour ton petit mot doux, et pourquoi bien sûr je t'aime beaucoup ma chère, tu le sais. Si je semble parfois un peu négligente, c'est parce que je suis tellement occupée que je ne semble pas avoir le temps de rattraper ma correspondance, mais je promets qu'après cela, je ferai mieux, honnêtement je le ferai.
Jimmie est arrivé il y a environ trois semaines et tu peux imaginer à quel point j'étais ravie. Je souhaite seulement qu'il n'ait pas à repartir.
Jimmie et moi sommes allés à Big Bear Lake pendant une semaine et nous nous sommes bien amusés. J'espère que toi et Bud serez bientôt là parce que j'aimerais que vous le rencontriez tous les deux.
J'ai pris congé de Radioplane. Je te raconterai tout quand je te verrai chérie ou je t'écrirai plus tard. J'ai tellement de choses à faire que je ferais mieux de terminer pour l'instant mais j'écrirai bientôt.
Dis bonjour à Bud pour moi.
Avec amour,
Norma Jeane. 

Letter transcription:
Thursday.
My dearest Cathy,
thank you for your sweet little note, why of course I like you dear very much, you know that. If I seem a little neglectful at times its because I'm so busy I don't seem to have any time to catch up on my correspondence, but I promise after this, I shall, do better, honestly I will.
Jimmie arrived about three weeks ago and you can imagine how thrilled I was. I only wish he didn't have to go back.
Jimmie and I went up to Big Bear Lake for a week and had a grand time I hope you and Bud will be down soon because I would love for you both to meet him.
I've been on leave of absence from Radioplane. I shall tell you all about it when I see you honey or I shall write to you later. I have so many things I have to do so I had better close for now but I shall write soon.
Tell Bud Hello for me.
