    George Harrison Handwritten Letter with Envelope (1974). A one page, double-sided handwritten letter that was sent by George Harrison from Bombay, India on 15th February, 1974 to Joe Marchini, a former assistant to George and member of the Apple staff. The letter, which is entirely in George's hand, comes with its original envelope, on which he has written his name and the address of where he was staying. Harrison has addressed the envelope "Joe Marchini, c/o Friar Park, Henley On Thames".

    It reads: "Dear Joe - Hi! Kumar and I are having a great time and I hope you are doing alright too! I would like you to check our Charles St. for me and see those jobs are done i.e. the wall by the T.V. & Kitchen that was damp, dropping apart & the fridge etc...whatever needs fixing - check the heating is O.K. and get someone to clean up and have clean sheets & towels - all the usual things. Kumar's Mother Lakshmi is going to be staying there from around the 1st week of March - so there is enough time to have it ready for her. Thanks a lot. We are going to Madras (south India) PTO on the 17th until 23rd or 24th than back to Bombay - and will try to leave on a flight about 2AM on the 27th, - which with the 5 ½ hours ahead we have, - get us to Heathrow around 10AM on the 27th. I'll cable friar Park the flight information when we have confirmed booking - but whenever it is - please bring big car as will have tons of baggage (+ the recording equipment) Also get my personal check book from Ted or Doreen in case of customs duty and try to get it to me inside the customs area - ta! Look forward to seeing you all - love to everyone take it easy - Hare KRSNA George". George has drawn an "OHM" symbol next to his name. Measures 5.9" x 8.1". Condition: Excellent.
    Envelope has been open unevenly at top with left top corner torn off. Condition Very Good.
