The notes seem to find that Baker provided Lee with drugs – including cocaine, LSD, and cannabis – from 1969 until his unfavorable passing.
They were found at a swap meet and sold through Heritage Auctions in Dallas, who have verified the letters. A representative for Heritage Auctions said: “Bruce Lee is the most compelling military craftsman ever also a mainstream society symbol about the twentieth century, and these letters show he kept a hazardous secret.”
There are various manually written letters from Lee to Baker – who passed on matured 52 of every 1993 – in the sale, with one appearance Lee requesting coke which he inferred would assist him with setting up a forthcoming film.
He stated: “Stoned as heck, however, am chipping away at the up-coming character…Some coke would help…” In another letter, he said: “COKE (in enormous sum),” “Corrosive (in considerable measure),” and “HASH OR GRASS,” alongside an inquiry about “psilocybin,” otherwise called sorcery mushrooms.
