The elimination of Saturday mail delivery got me thinking about when was the last time I got a real letter from someone.  And by real letter, I am excluding 'thank you' notes, cards and postcards.

I believe the last real letter I got was back in 2011 -- a letter from a traveler I met -- a Vietnam War vet who didn't use a computer! And prior to that... probably a more than a few years ago!

My hunch is that folks are writing a lot less both because of the internet and because long distance phone rates have come down a lot, compared to twenty or thirty years ago.  I imagine no one here rushes to the phone anymore because it's a 'long distance' call.

Last week I actually found the last letter I got. It was from an ex-bartender/waitress that moved away for a while. She sent me the letter because I was a good listener as she talked about her dad and issues with him. The letter was about her attempts to reconcile with herself what she was going to do. It was hand-written and mailed about 11 years ago.

This is one I'm outside any norms on.  I've always been an avid letter writer as are the older aunts and uncles and my Mom.  Also one of the funnest projects I participate in is post crossing.com which is a postcard well, not exactly exchange because you don't get one from someone that you send to, but you send a postcard and when someone registers that they got it, your address is given to someone somewhere else in the world and you never know where they will be coming from.  Very fun to share with my students.

What do you mean by 'found'?  You dug up a letter written and received 11 years ago?  Or you just now received a letter written and mailed 11 years ago?  I suspect the latter, but can't tell for sure.

A few letters from my daughter from overnight camp last summer. And even for those she probably was forced to write them by the counselors.

She isn't even learning to write cursive in school, letter-writing is destined to become a lost art.

Can't remember the last time I wrote a paragraph -- heck, even a long sentence -- in cursive!!

Didn't really give it much thought until a foreigner asked me on one of my travels why Americans always use upper case block letters?!  And yeah, except for writing out email addresses... I think most of us do scribble in upper case nowadays.

I got one just last month, but I cannot recall the one prior to that.  Since you have chosen to ignore Thank You notes, even hand written ones, I probably receive a letter less than once every 5 years.  

Of course, that excludes the letters I get from various financial companies explaining their fiscal year end liquidity.  Pension funds are fond of that.

Yep.  Real letters -- such as from friends and family.

If you are not talking about the traditional letter of what's been happing with our family  with a Christmas card  thens it's been ages. I think the last one was maybe 5 yrs ago or more. Probably more like 10 in fact.  I usually just talk to people and family on the phone.

The letter was written, mailed and received 11 years ago. I found it going through a box of personal stuff.

Funny, I carefully worded my response to this thread to indicate a letter I found that was written and received 11 years ago. If I wanted to convey that the letter was recently found (as if by the Post Office and finally delivered) I would have indicated that the Post Office had found it. (And would have made a much more interesting post.)

Around Christmas I write letters to a couple of friends.  One never writes back, he calls, but the lady we bought our home from 16 years ago used to reply.  I haven't heard from her this year and it concerns me because of her age and problems with diabetes.  Receiving a letter feels warm and fuzzy in a nostalgic way, but phones or social media are better for communicating.  I like hearing a persons voice.

Indeed.  To me, it's more enjoyable to hold and read a letter than an email.

I used to collect stamps -- and would sometimes read 19th century correspondence -- hard to imagine, but it used to take six months to post a letter between Asia and Europe!  And people were positively thrilled when that was cut down to a "mere" two months with the opening of the Suez Canal!  But I digress...

If you don't count get-well cards and the letters that come in Xmas cards, its been eons.  But this thread is making me want to sit down and write a real letter to someone.

And Ben, although I never succeeded in learning cursive in any meaningful way (and yes, I'm old enough that they tried, and it counted against me until I learned to type), I do not print in all caps.  I print in a mix of upper and lower case and, the more I write longhand (doing a lot of my rough drafts that way these days), the more I mix in what cursive comes smoothly.  Ever notice that letters like "r" and "b" in cursive are harder to write than they are in printing?  

But I'll be the first to admit that no one but me could read those rough drafts (encryption!) and my handwriting is worse than that of the average 3rd grader.

I got a letter from a WWII vet (10th Mountain Division) about a year ago.  I still have it around here somewhere.

I was giving a talk in Estes Park, CO about my trips on Baranof Island, Alaska, and among other things I'd displayed an old pair of antique steel crampons I'd found in the mountains up there.  This vet wrote me a letter afterward, explaining how those were exactly like the ones he was issued, that there were likely a lot of them in the region after the war (surplus stores, etc), and that he was pretty sure it was something from that period.  Upon further research, he was right.

I wrote him a letter back thanking him for the message.  It was a very neat thing.

The letter I have that I found in a 1923 physics textbook belonging to my grandma, delights me to this day, her older brother had been skipping school to swim in the irrigation canal in their farm community in northern Illinois.  The principal had heard about it from people who had seen my great-uncle, and had sent a note home with one of the siblings requesting a parent meeting, when he didn't hear back, he mailed a handwritten letter with no return address. Somehow my grandma ended up using it as a bookmark so I wonder if my great grandfather had ever actually gotten it.

I doubt your great grandfather ever saw that letter.  Your grandma likely intercepted the letter and used it to blackmail her brother.  Most likely she got what she wanted -- then kept the letter to keep her brother in her control -- until it was eventually forgotten.  Sisters are evil like that.  :;):

Oooops, didn't read your whole message.  A real letter separate from a card?  Probably 2003, I was dating a guy who wrote me wonderful love letters (and vice versa).

I did receive several nice handwritten letters inside cards this Christmas.

I have two young nieces in Maryland and a young nephew in Texas.  About a year ago, I decided that receiving letters was a great joy as a child, so I would write them each a letter every month and maybe one day they'd write back.  Within a day or two of receipt, both families had called me to say that it was nice, but it would be easier on the parents if I'd just call.  Thus ended that project...

My cursive has never been legible and the Coast Guard and police department both preferred capital block letters if I couldn't type something.  My signature is just a scrawl that I'm familiar with by now.

My grandma and I corresponded by letter until she passed in 2002, then her sister and I would exchange a couple of letters per year until she passed last year.  

On my last rafting trip, I met a wonderful older lady who just doesn't do email, so we've corresponded a few times through snail mail.

I love to get mail, and still send handwritten Christmas cards, birthday cards and thank you letters.  I even still buy notecards here and there, which largely go unused.

I recently wrote one to my as-yet unborn grandson, Raspberry.  Typed on a computer, but signed by hand.

As far as receiving, it's really only from my mom and mother-in-law in the form of cards on holidays.

However, several years ago when my youngest daughter was in college, I received a very nice 100% handwritten letter from another parent thanking me for some things I had done.  I was very aware that it was 100% handwritten.

It's a dying art.  I blame it on NAND gates, silicon, and their ilk.

I have a friend that only corresponds via mail, and we each send 2 or 3 letters per year, usually when some random event occurs that we need to talk about.  We used to talk a lot before he retired and left civilization behind.  :)

I always send post cards from trips. And I also keep packs of note cards and a (paper) address file on my desk; I work near the post office, so writing a note to someone (though usually a thank you note of sorts) gives me an excuse for a quick walk to the mail box on my break.

Incomplete Poll !

You left out today !!!!

I didn't vote

I'm ignoring your comments about post cards, photo's etc, since most of my family always includes at least a small to very large hand written note on everything they send.

I just received a nice photo of my my 2 month old Grand daughter today with 3 paragraphs of hand written messages.

Yes it was ink, minor spelling problems, but it's the thought that counts !

You did leave out "today" in the poll.  I am also a letter writer, and have always, always loved sending and receiving mail.  I make it a point to have "good" stationery - cards, paper with matching envelopes, special stamps for birthdays, etc., and try to match the cards with the kind of person I'm writing.  

It does take more "effort" on the part of the writer, but a person who receives a letter has something they can hold in their hand, read, read aloud to someone else, re-read a week (or several years) later, and put into a book to use as a bookmark.  (Or blackmail a brother with.)

I treasure certain letters I've received from people now lost to me through relationship changes, moving, or death.  I have saved sweet letters from relatives and old boyfriends.  It does make me "warm and fuzzy" to read them occasionally.
And my daughter will one day find the stash of letters "to and from" me and her father when he was away at law school.  I hope she loves them as much as I do.

My cousin and I attempted to mail each others letters for a few months, but it did not last long. That was over 5 years ago. Nowadays I still write thank you and xmas letters, but other than that the only people I write to on occasion are 3 members from the Tennessee Trails Association that I used to hike with. I wrote them each Christmas letters, but I haven't heard back from them. I could easily find their phone numbers through the internet and call them, but haven't in the 2+ years since I moved away.
