While cleaning up my den, I found the box of letters between my mother's mother and her father just prior to their marriage. They were married in Hutchinson, KS in 1904. Now this is what penmanship should look like. Well...in a love letter, anyway. :) Her name was Mary Olive Emmert, but WR called her Marie.

Actually...the funny thing about small towns. There were a few times someone would mail me a letter in Colby, they would just put my name, the city and state, and by golly..guess what showed up in my mailbox. ;)

That is a great find Cath! I love finding old things like that! And yes, she had excellent penmenship! And the stamp is still in great shape! That is awesome!
