Old Brown Ink

I love old letters. I love the colors acquired in old paper. I love the forthrightness of the old brown ink. The letter above was written by my great-great-great-great grandfather back in 1831. He had hit on some hard times, and had gone to Alabama for work at the age of 61. It's an amazing thing to hold a document that a family member wrote 177 years ago.

"Do not let what you cannot do
keep you from doing what you can do."

John Wooden
