HOWARD HUGHES and JEAN PETERS Hughes writes to his wife Jean, asking her if she would like to join him after watching a cinema since she has had trouble sleeping, and she replies that she will although she may get sleepy soon. A reclusive billionaire, Hughes lived in separate quarters (but in the same house) from his wife and was mostly confined to his bedroom, speaking to her almost entirely in notes and letters. Autograph letter double signed: "Howard", "J", "H", "J" 1 page, 8½x14 (front and verso). No place, no date, but circa 1964.
Hughes' letter begins: "Dearest Adorable". In full: I love you very, very much. Are you all right, and is your mother + Red feeling well and enjoying their trip? Is there anything I can do to be of service to them?Tonight, so please just tell me what time you would like to go to bed and I will arrange everything accordingly. I love you some more and then also again. Peters' letter, written beneath her husband's, begins: "Dear Love". In full: Everything is fine - we are watching Hollywood Palace.
Shout 11:30 is OK - There is nothing Mother and Red want - They just like to sit and talk. Hughes: Dearest, I forgot completely about Cinema IX which starts tonight at eleven and for the last time. So since you are having trouble sleeping anyway, why don't you turn it on promptly at 11:00 and run it until you get bored with it. If you see it at all, we can still have an hour and you can get to bed around two, which is no later than if you had gone to the theatre. Also better than lying awake until five.
However, if you commence to feel even the least bit depressed, lonely, or restless, please come in here without any indecision. I may be sick but I can at least hold your hand and tell you how much I love you. Otherwise I'll expect you when the Cinema is over, Love. Peters: "OK - That's very sweet - I swam today so I may get sleepy sooner - Love Again and don't worry about me - I hope you feel better". H: "I tried to watch this + promptly slept thru the whole thing", "I think I had turned off for a commercial when I fell asleep".
The dashing aviator and movie mogul had met Peters in 1946, when she had come to Hollywood as a prize for winning the Miss Ohio state title. Hughes was intrigued by Twentieth Century-Fox's rising star, who made her film debut in 1947. Following 11 years of sporadic dating, the two were married in a small mining town outside of Las Vegas on January 12, 1957. Hughes, known for working odd hours into the night, preferred to relay his business and personal directives via memos and hand-written notes rather than the spoken word, and he would communicate with his wife in this same manner.They jotted notes about planned meetings, films, business and opinions in general. Hughes lived at the fashionable address of 1001 Bel Aire.
However, their marital arrangements included separate living quarters, and Jean often was required to make an appointment with Hughes' aides in order to see her husband. By this time in their marriage, the couple was known to usually spend a half hour together after 11 p.
Before retiring to their separate bedrooms. In November 1966, Howard Hughes confined himself to a hotel penthouse in Las Vegas, Nevada.
In 1970, after having spent most of her married life with Hughes in separate accommodations, Jean Peters Hughes was granted a divorce. See more material from these signers.
