Signed ``Norma``, and written in pencil, the eight-pages long letter dated September 14, 1942 is addressed to her foster mother Grace Goddard.

The envelope has a postage stamp showing it was sent from Van Nuys, California on September 14, 1942, reports the Daily Mail.

The actress describes her married life with 21-year-old James Dougherty, saying: “He really keeps me busy cleaning the house and fixing meals, everybody told me that it is quite a responsibility being a house wife, and boy, I’m finding it out. But it really is a lot of fun’,

“Jimmy is so swell to me, in fact I know that if I had waited 5 or 10 years I couldn’t have found anyone who would have treated me better. I just think the world of him and we

get along so nicely. He is just so sweet about every little thing,” she had written.

She has described her new home and drawn a floor plan diagram of the rooms and furniture, as well as revealing details of her wedding in the letter.

Meanwhile, the letter has been sold at an auction for 52,460 dollars.

A Los Angeles-based auction house, Bonhams and Butterfields had placed a pre-sale estimate of 25,000-30,000 dollars on the artefact.
