John Lennon’s Holiday Card to Yoko Ono’s Ex
During the holiday season of 1968, Yoko Ono’s second husband, Anthony Cox, received a card from Ono, then still his wife, and her boyfriend, John Lennon. In it, Lennon and Ono informed Cox that Ono had taken most of her things from her shared home with Cox—in other words, she was officially moving on with Lennon, whom she met in 1966. This card, not exactly full of holiday mirth, can now belong to a lucky Beatles fan for $15,000 via momentsintime.com.
Though that seems like a steep price for a Christmas card, the note does contain a bonus message for Cox, from Lennon. In a separate note written on Apple Records letterhead, Lennon asked Cox if he could send two of Ono’s short films and master tapes from a recent performance with jazz musician Ornette Coleman. “Also, we want to get on with producing Ornette-Yoko record under Apple before Easter. That will be very good,” he wrote.
