Autograph letter signed ("2Pac"), 2 pp [recto and verso], Dannemora, New York, July 3, 1995, with transmittal envelope, to a young woman. "It seems the guards (all white) are out 2 destroy my character even further." Shakur alleges that the guards planted evidence on him and assaulted him, "So I have my attorneys working overtime." He discusses his rocky recent marriage: ". . . I am struggling 2 figure out the secret / 2 a good marriage. It has only been 2 months / and already I have had a million arguments with / my wife . . ." Shakur spends the next page intensely asking for the recipient's "HONEST and UNCONDITIONAL friendship."
