    Great work, Gilberte. Beautiful composition. And the letter is from 1852? Wow!

  • Thanks a bunch Kofoed. Yes that letter is that old.My grabddad must have inherited it and then my father and then myself.It is still intact but the paper looks old of course. I keep it in a photo album with plastic between the pages..
