Book: The Etiquette of Letter Writing


I found this wonderful little book while thrifting a couple of weeks ago and have wanted to share it with everyone.


What really got me was the quote at the beginning of the book (which was written in 1927!):

Now that the visits of a generation ago which lasted the better part of an afternoon are superseded by a moment’s stop in a motor and the dropping of cards…

Even in 1927, there seemed to be concerns that society was moving too quickly to bother with the niceties of letter-writing. Crazy, huh?
