A Marilyn Monroe Group of Delivery Receipts, 1962. Nine total; all from Gristede Bros., Inc. [a New York City supermarket], dating from "5-1-62" to "5-31-62" (though clerk wrote wrong year of "1961" on the last two receipts), each noting "Miller," most further noting "13E 444-57" [444 East 57th Street #13E -- MM's NYC apartment], all outlining what MM had delivered including staples like "milk, juice, cheese" and "butter" plus more exotic items like "Escarole, English muffins, buttermilk, Danish, CocoCola" and "strawberry Jello," among many other items; included is the month-end invoice where her deliveries totaled "$39.91."  Interestingly, MM spent much of the month of May 1962 at her apartment in NYC, gearing up for her now-infamous performance at JFK's Madison Square Garden birthday bash on May 19th.
