Letters

All sorts of letters (and envelopes, too) have been sent to our attention over the years. Some were beautifully illustrated by renowned artists, some were sternly composed by famous writers, some were hilarious, and others surprisingly revealing. Posted below are a few favorites, available as images and as text.
