Some time ago I was in the copy shop I used to frequent before I purchased my printer. I happen to notice a large copy of an old letter in the discard bin beside the copier I was using. I pulled it out and as I use vintage writing samples in my work, I threw it in with my papers. After I got home I looked closer at what was written. It was a love letter and marriage proposal from the 1800's. Following is an excerpt from the letter as written.
" Mif ever since I left your house My mind has been continually ruminating on your many amiable accomplishments. I am not precipitate Mif. Nor would I desire your hand if your heart did not accompany it. In short Mif I am once in love, yet I assure you that I am in real earnest and your own dear self is the object but perhaps you will ask how happens all this. I answer that I cannot tell how it happens."
He goes on to mention the proposal and she must decide if it is to her advantage or not. I wonder if she accepted ?
Happy Valentines Day......
