The Trouble With Thank You Notes

I'm not sure just exactly how I came across this fantastic article on thank you notes on Slate circa 2005, but it's well worth going back in time! If you happen to be a Thankful Newsletter subscriber or like TTYP on Facebook, you've had a chance to check it out already, but if you're none of these, you might want to take a moment to do so now. Why? It features pretty awesome authentic thank yous from Benjamin Franklin, Harry Truman, Virginia Woolf and Margaret Mitchell among a few others.

  3. Oh how marvelous and interesting!!! I loveeee seeing the historical aspect of the art of gratitude. I guess it shouldn't be that weird as they were just people but it's funny to think that they valued the importance of thanking people so long ago. Really love this article! I like this one, haha: My dear Susie: A fortnight ago I hoped to deliver you in person my thanks for the birthday greetings and to show you the tie in situ; but you were off with joyous Jonathan.
