Lot 636: Rare ALS, one page, 7.25 x 10, American Airlines letterhead, no date. Letter to the parents of an American Airlines flight attendant, in full: "You have a very nice Respectable daughter and I gather from talking to her that she Loves you." In fine condition, with a few slight creases and spots of foxing. Accompanied by the original provenance letter from the daughter to her parents, dated April 20, 1971, in part: "Look who I had on my flt. He wrote you a letter about me. We talked for a few hours. I became quite close to this man. What a warm gentle person he is and so is Priscilla his wife. We discussed everything you can imagine. He said, 'I had what it took.' That's some compliment for Elvis himself." Handwritten letters from Elvis are exceptionally rare; backed by its warm provenance story, this wonderful, boldly penned letter shows clearly the charm that made the King a beloved pop icon.
