This 200-year-old love letter was found folded up and hidden in an arm-chair!
Written in french (and in PENCIL, I can’t believe it survived and is readable!), its style and language dates it back to the 1800s. The letter was translated and roughly says:
“My dear small love, do not be worried, do you seriously believe I would tell anything to these people, who don’t understand anything about love?
If someone insists that I say something, it will be anything but the dear love acquired by you, which is the great treasure hidden in my heart.
I didn’t tell you to come yesterday because I didn’t have the opportunity, but do come every Tuesday around 5:30, and Fridays as well; I count/hope on you tomorrow.
At the moment I write this letter, I can hear my aunt yelling, who else annoys us all day long, today and tomorrow.
My dear, I cover you with kisses and caresses until… I need you in this moment of desire. I love you.”
*swoon* how romantic?!
I had just finished watching “Letters to Juliet” when I found this story and it gave me the warm fuzzies 🙂 What perfect timing! I am usually not the sappy, lovey-dovey type… But this story definitely appealed my romantic side.
The person that found the letter is writing to the family that owned the chair for the past 150 years to try and find out more! I’m expecting another movie in the coming years.
