Letter writing is the only device for combining solitude with good company. ~Lord Byron
When did they stop being commonplace and become a novelty?
It seems a long time since the morning mail could be called correspondence. ~Jacques Barzun
I am an unabashed writer of letters. I hardly love anything more than to receive a lovely letter in the mail, be it one page or ten, and the pleasure of sitting down with a cup of tea to answer one is one of the greatest joys in life.
What a lot we lost when we stopped writing letters. You can’t reread a phone call. ~Liz Carpenter
I have the pleasure of having several snail-mail correspondants, whose letters I love and keep and treasure. So I put it to you, dear friends – do you enjoy writing letters?
And if so, are you interested in having another correspondant? Beware: my letters include my best stationary, my best penmanship, and an ocassional wax seal! If you can write a good letter, then I would love to write with you. If you’re interested, leave a comment here!
Politeness is as much concerned in answering letters within a reasonable time, as it is in returning a bow, immediately. ~Lord Chesterfield
