Johnny Cash typed draft letter, on personal
Typed draft letter with terrific content, one page,
on Cash's personal letterhead. A draft version of a letter that was apparently sent out with copies of his 1976 autobiography, Man in Black, in which Cash discusses his battles with drug addiction. In part, In 1976, I wrote the book MAN IN BLACK. The
purpose of this book was several fold. One of the
primary reasons was to re-dedicate myself to the
continuous basis and to remind myself of how close
I really came to losing it all because of drugs, and
possibly serve as an inspiration to others. My problem in drugs was the prescription kind issued by
physicians that serve a legitimate need. I abused
them, buying them by the hundreds, using every subterfuge in the book to get some doctor to write the
perscription. Adding to the uniqueness of this letter,
Cash has made several changes and corrections,
by hand, along the body of the letter. In excellent condition. 21.50 x 28 cm. (8.39 x 10.92 in.) No Reserve.
