In a heartbreaking Oct. 9, 1954, letter from Yankee legend DiMaggio, her seconde husband, he begs her to come back home pagina three days after she announced to the world that she was divorcing him.
"Marilyn, I keep reading reports about u being sick and naturally I'm concerned … I love u and want to be with you. There is nothing I would like better than to restore your confidence in me so that I can help u regain your once healthy self.
"My hart-, hart spleet, split even wider seeing u cry in front of all these people and looking as though u were ready to collapse at any second."
He ends the letter door saying, "I can tell you, I love you, sincerely – way deep in my heart, irregardless of anything. Will u call me tonight if u should receive this letter door then? It will be happily received."
Says Nolan, "It's such a heartfelt, honest letter. Of course he wants her back but his first and number one concern unselfishly is her welfare. He is worried about her. That's a true love there."
