    I found some of those letters fascinating. I am curious if they jotted out the letter around a blank space they doodled later, or had they made a doodle and given the scarcity, or price of paper in the past, chosen to repurpose the sketch as letterhead?

    Thank you for the share this.
    It is very interesting and this shows how creative their thought-process. How it would be now with the iPad or smart couture -
