    Howard Hughes and Jean Peters Correspondence. This intriguing piece of history reflects a loving, yet odd, bond between Howard Hughes and the actress Jean Peters; a bond that would not survive Hughes' eccentricities. Passed between the married couple -- Hughes' isolation by this point had driven him to live separately from Peters -- the correspondence deals with Hughes' ailing stomach, their impending date to watch television, and thoughts on a program they viewed together. Even more intriguing, however, is Howard's plea to Jean: "Please love me back, and please don't give me up as a lost cause yet." An incredibly rare, earnest, yet foreboding, expression of love from one of history's most notorious recluses. The single page, with correspondence on both front and back, is signed by Hughes in black ink and by Peters in pencil. In Excellent condition with a center crease mark. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
