    Richard Harris Signed Letter to Sammy Davis Jr. Single-page, typed letter on personal stationery, dated April 7, 1963. It reads in part: "Jesus Christ, Sammy Davis, I have never felt so impotent as I did watching you on Sunday night. Jealousy and envy raged through me to the extent that I declared when your show was finished that I was going to chuck it up and retire from the business altogether. I felt like a broken-nosed, bog-trotting gentile Irish git of an amateur who has not even begun to know. Thank you." Signed by Harris in blue ink, and in Excellent condition with a single faint fold crease. From the Sammy Davis Jr. Estate. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
