Fan's cash appeal pays off after 33 years A Beatles fan who appealed to John Lennon for money may get his reward 33 years later when the star's dismissive reply is sold at auction.
Indian fan Mr Bulla wrote to the singer in 1968 asking him to fund a round-the-world trip. Lennon's dismissive reply is likely to fetch up to £6,500 at auction later this month. It is thought Lennon wrote the reply while he was in India undergoing an intensive course of meditation. The letter says: "If every request like yours was granted there would be no 'huge treasure' as you call it. All you need is initiative. "If you don't have it, I suggest you try transcendental meditation through which all things are possible." The sale of the letter, along with other pop memorabilia, will be held on April 26, reports the Daily Express. --- In FairfieldLife@yahoogroups.com, "Paul Mason" <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > 'A rare autographed letter sent by John Lennon to an Indian fan during > his sojourn in Rishikesh for a course of meditation with the Maharishi > Mahesh Yogi went for £9,400 ($14,000).' > > Whilst in Rishikesh with Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in 1968, John Lennon > responded to the Indian fan's request for money by writing: "If every > request like yours was granted - there would be no 'huge treasure' as > you call it - All you need is initiative." > To subscribe, send a message to: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Or go to: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/FairfieldLife/ and click 'Join This Group!'
