One required writer who I genuinely found a passion for in college was Mark Twain, aka Samuel Clemens. His humor and wit is unmatched by any authors I've read (and I've read. a lot.).
I was delighted to find this little love letter written by Mr. Clemens, to his wife Olivia.
Hartford, Nov 27/88
Livy darling, I am grateful- gratefuler than ever before- that you were born, & that your love is mine & our two lives woven & welded together!
I try to leave K little notes of love and appreciation as often as I think of it.
When I went off to college, my grandparents let me have one of their couches. Long after they gave it to me I was finally cleaning under the cushions (yikes!) and I found a little love note from my Dada to Nana. It just said:
"I love the most beautiful girl in the world! Off to get a good supper. Be back 5:30-6:00.
What a wonderful man!
Have you ever recieved any love notes? Or found someone else's?
