this is interesting .. a handwritten letter from John to the New York Times in response to an article about the Beatles "ripping off" black music.

..apart from the content of the letter I think it's interesting as he may have written it on the flight he & Yoko took to the USA when leaving the UK for the last time..

In Flight... yes
Altitude... puzzled
Location... yes

But seriously, I remember reading in You Never Give Me Your Money that someone convinced/guilted John into paying a lot of money for benefiting from black artists all those years... I'll look it up, but it's interesting that he would be offended by the idea in this situation but not in the other.

Ad hoc, ad loc, and quid pro quo! So little time! So much to know!
