I found this letter in the parking lot of the Lloyd Center Mall in Portland, OR. The crossing out of the correct spelling of “basis” to write “baces” makes this heartfelt letter that much more sad.
FOUND by Aaron in Crystal Cove, Newport Beach, California
I was taking a winter walk on the beach with my family. An attractive young girl jogged by and stopped just ahead of us at a rocky outcrop. When we got to that spot, I found this floating on the shoreline.

I found this letter inside a used book that I bought in Germany (the books is English). The letter is obviously a final contact prior to an inevitable parting ways between Leo and Josh. You can almost feel Leonard’s hope and anguish in every sentence. I really felt sad for Leonard. I did wonder why he typed the letter (from the looks of it on the manual typewriter) instead of writing it long hand. I am also left wondering about his thought process in choosing this particular title to include as a gift with the letter: “Dungeon, Fire and Sword”, a history of the Templar Knights during the crusades. I would have thought poetry might have been a better choice. Finally, since there is a reference to Bastille Day, perhaps Josh was French. Does that mean the book traveled from New York to Germany by way of France?
FOUND by M. in Reno, Nevada
I found this July 6th in my hometown and it broke my heart while also making me want to run through a meadow, a lá The Sound of Music.
