Letter written 83 years ago delivered
SKOWHEGAN, Maine — A letter written by a Maine school teacher in 1931 to her mother 150 miles away has finally been delivered — 83 years later.
Twenty-three-year-old Miriam McMichael sent the nine-page letter from Houlton to Dollena McMichael in Pittsfield. The letter was lost and only recently found at the Pittsfield post office. A postal worker knew it was old because of the 2-cent stamp.
The letter is now in the hands of 69-year-old Ann MacMichael, Miriam’s niece and Dollena’s granddaughter.
