    A Connie Francis-Received Love Letter from Bobby Darin, 1956. Three pages, undated but likely composed when Darin was performing at the Gay Haven Supper Club in Detroit, Michigan in April 1956, handwritten in pencil on Hotel Wolverine [in Detroit] letterhead, reading in part "Dear Connie / ...Well I've / given myself the long time needed to see the results & / all I've got to say is I'm M-I-S-E-R-A-B-L-E, so / damned unhappy & miserable without you, that I feel / the lump inside like the one you get when you're going to / cry.../ maybe I'm coming on too strong but, well I never wrote / anyone any kind of 'love letter' (don't believe in it) but I can't / help writing you like this because it's the way I feel/ / ...I love you very, very much / Bobby" -- definitely the kind of letter any gal would love to receive! (Please note all three pages are separately laminated.)
    11" x 8 1/2"
    Included with a 'Certificate of Authenticity' hand-signed by Connie Francis.

    "He was the love of my life..."
