    Default X-Ray Eyes and "Letterlocking"

    Interesting article on the world of letters before sealed envelopes, and how to deal with examining them now. Posted by member Saul over at Pentrace.

    Fascinating isn't it? .. and to think none of these letters never arrived. There was a more detailed article in the NYtimes yesterday, about Mary Queen of Scott's last letter, which never arrived to her cousin the King of France. The letter is quite touching and to a certain extant bone chilling.....

    Thank you for sharing! It was very informative. As far as I know, the most ancient letters can be called messages in the form of symbols and drawings. Some "letters" were left on the walls, while others were sent by messenger. It was the beginning of postal communication. It is believed that the first messengers appeared in ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia. Now you can easily send a message in a messenger, and for more serious letters, there are free cover letter template google docs, and other templates that greatly simplify this task.
