Love in 1896

Letters from 1896.
Love letters.

Nelson loves Susie.
He writes...'I am certainly very proud of you - your beautiful bravery and courage with absolutely no surrender about you.'

And Susie loves Nelson.
She writes...'I shall miss you dreadfully. I never have missed you so.'

Nelson is an attorney and writes of his cases.
He signs his letters...'Your Nelson'.

Susie writes of visitors and commitments within the community.
She signs her letters...'I am your Susie'.

Love in 1896.

Hi! Cindy,

Ahhhh! the romance. Sooo sweet how they expressed themselves in those letters. Love it!

Those are lovely finds. It is such a pleasure to read & see the penmanship of that period. Great stuff!

Thanks! for sharing. Have a sunny weekend!
