Jordan struggles with grammar and love

Jordan’s two-page “love letter” to his dearest “Laquette” was sold at an auction, some days ago, for a generous price of over $5000.

 

What is more noteworthy however is his poor grammar and his awkward flirting, something much evident in the letter.{jathumbnail off}

Written in 1980, during an advanced chemistry class as Jordan himself mentions, the letter was an apology to his then sweetheart with lavish quotes such as “I felt that I made you look pretty rotten” and “don’t let this go to your head. (smile)”

The transcript of the letter:

Michael Jordan

My Dearest Laquette

How are you and your family doing, fine I hope. I am in my Adv. Chemistry class writing you a letter, so that tell you how much I care for you. I decide to write you because I felt that I made you look pretty rotten after the last night. I want to tell you that I am sorry, and hope that you except my apologie. I know that you feelings was hurt whenever I loss my necklace or had it stolen.

I was really happy when you gave me my honest earn money that I won off the bet. I want to thank you for letting me hold your annual. I show it to everyone at school. Everyone think you are a very pretty young lady and I had to agree because it is very true. Please don’t let this go to your head. (smile) I sorry to say that I can’t go to the game on my birthday because my father is taking the whole basketball team out to eat on my birthday. Please don’t be mad because I am trying get down there a week from Feb. 14. If I do get the chance to come please have some activity for us to do together.
