I bought a vinyl copy of Movin’ With Nancy by Nancy Sinatra at a thrift store a few months ago. When I went to play the album I found this letter inside a little envelope, addressed to Mary from Sam. I wonder if Sam gave Mary this album and if she listened to it with her family. I also wonder what parental problem Mary was having and what they did when they met at noon.
I found this wonderful love letter on the very top shelf in the office supply closet of the apartment complex I manage, along with four others. The envelopes have 3 cent stamps and postmarks that include encouragement to buy U.S. Bonds. I was intrigued right away because the letters are all from November and December of 1950 but the apartment complex wasn’t built until 1984. I chose this letter to share because it reflects not only the sweet, innocent love of that time, but also a little about life in general.
