Persson Letter Translation, Page 1 – CARLI Digital Collections Featured Image


From Anna Persson Immigrant Letters, Swenson Center (Augustana College) in CARLI Digital Collections.

The first page of this letter, written by Anna Persson to her sister in 1907, reflects the joy of a recent immigrant to the United States.

From Black Empowerment Collection (Meadville Lombard Theological School) in CARLI Digital Collections.

It's not only that this partly-burned item was saved, preserved, and digitized that intrigues me, but the envelope is stamped "damaged in handling in the postal service." How often does mail catch fire?

Abandoned mine shop - CARLI Digital Collections Featured Image
