Monroe, Eisenhower letters to be auctioned


Letters from Marilyn Monroe, Dwight D. Eisenhower and John Lennon are among hundreds of historical documents being offered in an online auction.

Monroe tells acting coach Lee Strasberg in a handwritten, undated letter that she can't concentrate on what she is trying to learn. That note, written on Hotel Bel-Air letterhead stationery, is expected to fetch up to $50,000.

A collection of 58 letters that Eisenhower wrote to his wife, Mamie, while he was the Allied commander during World War II could bring up to $120,000.

And John Lennon's letter to Paul and Linda McCartney around the time of the Beatles' formal 1971 breakup could bring up to $60,000.

They are among 250 items being auctioned May 30 by the documents dealer Profiles in History.
