LETTER TO ENGLAND, IN ENGLISH. ENGLAND WRITES BACK

letter to england

June 11, 1946: The wings of the Hughes Hercules aircraft, now know as the Spruce Goose, are moved from Hughes Aircraft plant in Culver City to Long Beach. Move took two days as movers traveled at two miles per hour. In Long Beach the aircraft was assembled and flown in 1947. This photo was published in the June 12, 1946 LA Times.

 

Who writes a letter to England?

 

Before you scroll off to other click-bait, consider this: Write one letter to the person or place of your choice. One letter.

Start with the usual, “Dear.”

Then send it.

If your letter sends death threats or rings fire alarms, this isn’t for you.

Instead, call it a request for feelings, a reminder of who matters in your life.

Write it, send it, share it.

PS: Because my in-laws came from England doesn’t mean they’re pirates, not matter what Sir Francis Drake says.
