Q: There are 2 options in checkout, what are they?Asked by Travis M., August 2019
So sorry for the confusion! I am very glad for your message letting me know there was a problem so it could be fixed. If you check now, there will be only one "Arts in Letters Weekly Letter Packet" listed.
The "Subscribe Now" button will take you directly to the screen where you choose the length of your subscription. You'll want to choose your "Subject" category before you hit "Subscribe Now."

This is really cute! It’s an awesome way to learn bits of history in small doses. Especially neat being able to read in their own words! Really puts a different face on history. And who doesn’t love finding a letter in their mailbox? Would definitely recommend!
This is the perfect gift for my busy dad who always says he wants nothing. All the letters are interesting and printed in the original handwriting. The letters often include extra information about the topic. They are never too long so they're great for busy people and they come weekly which is so unique for a subscription. Overall, such a great service I can not recommend more highly!
If you love history or are just intellectually curious, you will love this subscription! I truly look forward to it each and every week (yes, you get something every week!). I chose the “grand slam” subscription that rotated through figures from art, literature, music, and science. I’ve learned a lot from the info provided with each letter, and the letters themselves are fascinating. Since you get 4 packets a month and not just one, it’s also a great value.
This subscription is a fun little one that is great for fans of history. I receive a letter each week, and my kids and I have enjoyed reading and discussing the correspondences. It is amazing to my kids how much time went into writing letters, and I am hoping to spark a love of writing and/or journaling kids do not have exposure to anymore in our technical age. The letters are great to pass along to others to share as well. A nice touch is the envelopes are hand addressed. The letters are computer printed, but I prefer that as I was worried about trying to read the handwriting of any photocopied letters (although a handwriting sample from the writers would be neat to see too!) All in all, this is a great subscription and you get a lot with a new letter each week versus once a month like most boxes. Highly recommend!
Thanks, Wendy! So glad you and your kids are enjoying Arts in Letters!

Dickens' "A Christmas Carol" was published just a week before this letter was written by friend, literary critic and Parliamentarian Sir Francis Jeffrey. "Blessings on your kind heart, my dear Dickens! And may it always be as light and full as it is kind, and a fountain of kindness to all within reach of its beatings! We are all charmed with your Carol, chiefly, I think, for the genuine goodness which breathes all through it. . . . "
