from me to you

Dear Blog,
Happy Valentine's Day!



This is Romance with a capital R (not the hearts, flowers, and bon-bons variety) - let's hope that your Valentine's Day turns out better than Pola Negri's!

love letter

I was looking for an old valentine and came across this letter. The envelope is dated Dec 27-10.


Chester Pa.

Miss Esther H.

Please excuse my writing to you but I would like to call on you some Saturday night in the last of January. I know I don't have any looks but give me a chance anyway.

I always liked your looks but never had the nerve before. Even if you won't make a date answer this letter right away and say yes or no.

If you say yes I can't come much before nine o'clock because we work up until 4 o'clock on Sat. I don't know if you have any fellow or not but I don't think you have for you had none last summer.

Yours respectively,
Wm. P.

Say yes, Esther.
