A surprise message from Marilyn Monroe to her doctors

I missed this last Friday, but Letters of Note has an historical letter from Marilyn Monroe to her physicians written shortly before she had an appendectomy. Apparently the note was a surprise to her physicians and was taped to her stomach. She begins:

cut as little as possible I know it seems vain but that doesn't really enter in to it. The fact I'm a woman is important and means much to me.

The letter is short and the rest is worth reading. Head over to Letters of Note for more.
