Artifact: "Dear Jeans Woman" letter by John Lennon

Up for sale at Heritage Auctions:
A humorous and polite 8.25" x 10" letter of complaint written to the proprietor of a boutique called Bowinkle's Revenge in West Hollywood where he had purchased three pairs of jeans that turned out to be a bit too loose. It reads, in full: "Dear Jeans Woman,/ Would it be possible for/ THE BEARER OF THIS HERE LETTER, to/ SWAP* these 3 pairs of jeans which/ turned out to LARGER THAN/ EXPECTED for something smaller?/ Yours in baggy pants, with thanks/ [two caricatures] John Lennon/ Yoko Ono/ *in case you are somebody else, we bought/ these jeans at your place - sometime last/ week."
