Hi Hart Beat. How are you today? I know I’ve been posting a lot of love letters here lately, but as we’re all hopeless romantics here at the beat, I’m sure you don’t mind. A shout out to “Letters of Note” again for this lovely love letter. See what I did there? This one is by Mark Twain (Samuel Clemons) to his wife, Olivia.
Hartford, Nov. 27/28
Livy Darling, I am grateful — gratefuler than ever before — that you were born, & that your love is mine & our two lives woven & welded together!
