    Sharon Tate Childhood Handwritten Note. Sharon Tate had a deeply loving relationship with her paternal grandmother, whom she called "Nannie." This note, handwritten in pencil on lined 4.5" x 6.5" paper and featuring a pre-printed sketch of chipmunks, was obviously written shortly after Sharon started school, circa 1949. The child writes: "Dear Nanne [sic] I love you I am doing just fine in school I am reading our new friends [sic] my hair is long its [sic] past my shoulders I will see you...will you come back with us Love Sharon and mother and father." Sharon added an additional piece of paper with the chipmunks on it. The note has some aging and minor staining but the early penmanship is still vivid, and the words "Love Sharon" are delightful to see. In overall Fine to Very Fine condition. Accompanied by James Spence Authentication auction LOA.
