My Father and the Man in Black (2012)
Johnny Cash: In late '61 we played the Big D in Dallas, Texas and my manager, Saul Holiff, said, "We need a girl singer on the show tonight. They want more than just you and your band." And I said, "Well, get one." He said, "What do you think about June Carter?" And I said, "I've always been a fan of hers." And I had, you know. I loved her work. I said, "Get her if you can." So we booked June Carter on the Big D in Dallas and then that night my manager asked if she would work the next tour with us. So she did.
[Original Source: Interview with WHN Radio New York, July 4, 1980]
Saul Holiff: Dear June, It was nice talking with you the other night... even though I acted like a concerned father. This letter confirms your appearance in Des Moines. We have George Jones, Carl Perkins, and Patsy Cline and June "The Heel" Carter. I would also like to confirm you and all your assorted relatives, at Carnegie Hall, for a fee of $500. Yours, Saul.
[Original Source: Letter to June Carter, December 25, 1961]
June Carter: Hi Saul, I signed the contract and returned it. As we discussed on the phone, this is our "tour price," and I was expectin' as many as 4 days. At this rate, we will just about make expenses. Let's hope the other dates come through. When I see you, we will discuss the management deal. Regards to John, Fluke, Marshall and Luther. I love you all. June.
[Original Source: Letter to Saul Holiff, January 3, 1962]

Johnny Cash: Saul, There is one question that burns in our minds. Do you believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the Messiah as prophesied by the Old Testament? Do you believe in His Divinity?
[Original Source: Letter from Johnny Cash to Saul Holiff; April 28, 1975]
Saul Holiff: John, I can't honestly answer your question about Jesus. Years of sounding off about things I haven't fully investigated has resulted in a need for a mental catharsis.
[Original Source: Letter from Saul Holiff to Johnny Cash; May 20, 1975]
June Carter Cash: For Saul, Dear Lord, in your book of predestined, preordained, if it's not there - I wish you'd write down ol' Saul's name. Back when excuses had to fall it was Saul who took the call, and looked you straight in the face and followed Johnny every place, in bars, honky- tonks and ditches - ol' Saul caught the heavy pitches - and threw them back just as hard. He fought to keep John in the yard.
