Not sure what I expected, I was excited about getting snail mail in the mail. I was hoping it would be like a friend once sent me stories that were written. The one I show above I enjoyed more than others. Some were like being in school and trying to read and understand. To much information on where you can find out more about this or that person. I think that should be included, maybe, but as the last page not right in the middle so that you are not sure where to start reading again. Great idea. Note sure if it was worth the price. but that is just me.
Thanks for your review and for your feedback, Mickey! Your pictures are great, too!
Balancing the portrayal of history with personality is a challenge and something I can always improve on. I have the fight the tendency to be a little too wonky, even for me!
Letter #2 - Edith Wharton to Mary Cadwalader Jones. Knowing nothing about Edith Wharton beforehand, I found this letter to be interesting and informative.
Letter #1 - I've received my first shipment today (12 months, mixed) of a letter from A. Einstein to E. Schrodinger and then a 2nd letter back to Einstein from Schrodinger. The writing is impeccable. I bought this subscription to use letters in my junk journals because I wasnt able to recreate them myself. NOW Im wondering how I ever thought I could. I CANT and most other people couldn't either. I wavered over this subscription for a couple months and wishing I had signed up earlier. I'm hoping to get a Mary Shelley letter at some point or maybe James Whale to one of his 'monsters'. Thanks AiL for a fabulous first.
Thank you so much, Robin! Glad you are enjoying reading the letters and backgrounds of different historical figures.
Also thanks for the suggestions! I've been looking for Mary Shelley letters to feature and hope that as I dig deeper I'll find something really good to feature. I'll have to look into James Whale, too. I'm always in need of new directions to explore!
