28 Vintage, Antique, Victorian Era Handwritten Letters 1870-1890 For Sale

Wonderful old collection of 28 vintage, antiqueletters from 1870-1890. Some are still in envelopes with postage stamp attached. Take a journey into a bygone era as you read these handwritten letters from early Americans to their family and friends depicting marriages, illnesses, deaths, longing for loved ones, and everyday life. One letter is especially beautiful and touching (see picture), from a sicklittle girl to her uncle in which she has hand-sewn a real flower to the top of the paper, still intact after 130 years!

It is from this very batchthat 2 letters by a young western Virginia woman (not included in this sale) inspired the bestselling novel Bountiful Creek: a legendary love story.

Maybe inspiration for the next bestseller lies among this treasure of Americana! In any case, there's hours of entertaining reading here. Perhaps evena framing project, or tracking down the descendants of the little girl with the flower???

Thank you for looking, and good luck!
