    Peter Lawford Letter. Member of the "Rat Pack" with Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., and Joey Bishop, actor Peter Lawford appeared in classics such as "The Longest Day" and the original "Ocean's Eleven." Featured is a handwritten, signed letter from Lawford to his wife Patricia, written by the actor while on his deathbed in December 1984. It reads in part: "Everything you said on the phone tonight had more than a ring of truth -- except for one thing and that being that you felt strongly that I was slowly drifting away from you and the bond our relationship has had from its inception was eroding." Written on blue UCLA Hospital stationery in black ink, it shows a moderate degree of wear and discoloration, as well as two folding creases. With COA from PSA/DNA.
