George Wyndham and the art of writing letters

Today we feature a truly old-fashioned guy. Mr. George Wyndham, an Englishman from the turn of the century who loved writing letters. So much so that it has taken two thick volumes to collect all the letters he wrote. The second volume alone has more than 800 pages. Any of Wyndham's descendants out there? If there are any descendants, they might enjoy reading some of this letters that he wrote to his mother, his sister, his father, his brother, etc. It is beautiful because he left for us a window into a time long-gone. He wrote about politics, diplomacy, and every day life.
If you'd like to read some of his letters, please email:
