Telegrams From Howard Hughes To Katherine Hepburn

Between flying and designing planes, producing movies and being a billionaire, Howard Hughes always seemed to make time for the ladies.

Details from one of his most high-profile affairs are now up for auction in the form of 22 telegrams he sent to Katherine Hepburn during their brief romance in the late 1930s.

The selection includes a telegram Hughes sent Hepburn on Jan. 19, 1937 - the day he set a new air record, flying from Burbank, Calif., to Newark, N.J., in seven hours, 28 minutes and 25 seconds.

The flight was over, and Hughes apparently was running behind schedule to meet Hepburn at Chicago's Ambassador Hotel before she performed in a play.

"Supposed to arrive six something in the afternoon," the Western Union telegram reads. "Probably not in time to see you before the theater so will try to contain myself until eleven thirty, love Dan."

Dan was short for Dynamite, one of several nicknames the two shared.

There's enough texture to the yarn that it is not as slippery as it could be. It's also slubbed, but unlike handspun slubs, these nubs/bumps are evenly spaced. It was easy to work with Kerijälaitteet
