My parents' house is full of old stuff, and lots of treasures. Some of the items I have never seen. This is one of those things:
This is an old box with personal letters from the late 1800's. It belonged to one of my dad's relatives. I don't know the story of how it got in the hands of my dad, but I started reading some of the correspondence and am looking forward to getting back to it. The box, itself, was interesting to see how it locked - we had trouble figuring it out.
