Letters of Note is a blog highlighting letters from the days before email and Twitter.

There are funny ones, sad ones, ones from American Presidents and even one from the creators of South Park.

My favourite is this, a letter from Dennis Cox in 1957 – see the original blog post for the letter and adorable diagrams by a little kid from Melbourne:

    I must write a letter and send them to someone !
