The Postman

Here's an interesting quote about letters:

"Look at that little bundle of letters grasped by the Postman. Who shall guess the histories that are there! – histories more deep, more touching, than many on the shelves of libraries..."
By Douglas Jerrold in "Punch's Complete Letter Writer and Sketches of the English," written in London in  1853

Nice quote...
Thanks for stopping by and following me today. I love that you write something everyday. My grandma always wrote me letters...I miss that. But I'm just as guilty of using the internet to keep in touch as most are now days. Guess it's just easier. Love your blog and will check daily!
