More Lennon Lyrics Going To Auction

There is sweet irony in the fact that a notice demanding payment of an overdue phone bill sent to John Lennon is now worth a small fortune.  John used the back side of the 1966 letter threatening legal action against him for failure to cough up what these days would amount to about $12 to jot down the words for I'm Only Sleeping just before the song was recorded for the  Revolver album. A nasty letter to a member of the Beatles over a pittance owed would be novel enough for it to sell at a significant multiple of the amount due.  With the lyrics on the back, the letter is now expected to bring close to a half a million dollars when it goes to auction Dec. 15. The hand written lyrics to A Day In The Life brought $1.2 million at an auction last June (story).
