In the printed letter, dated April 28, 1955, Steinbeck wrote a letter to Marilyn requesting her to send her pensive and girlish mood picture with an autograph for his nephew-in-law Jon Atkinson in which he wrote, “In my whole experience I have never known anyone to ask for an autograph for himself. It is always for a child or an ancient aunt, which gets very tire case, as you know better than I. It is with nausea I tell you that I have a nephew named Jon Atkinson, who is at the age of puberty but that is only one of his two problems another one is you.”

Steinbeck also added, “On a recent trip to Texas, my wife made a fatal error of telling my nephew that I have met you. He doesn’t really believe it but his respect for me has gone ways up. And Now I get asked all kinds of silly favors, so I have no hesitation at all of asking one of you, would you send a picture of yourself in perhaps a pensive, girlish mood, inscribed to his name and indicating that u know of his existence.”
