A BREAK-UP LETTER FROM 1976

November 23, 1976
by Robin Anonymous


The international love affair between Robert Anonymous of Huntington Woods, Michigan and Robin Anonymous of Harrow, Ontario, Canada apparently ended with this letter requesting a separation.

She did, however, leave an opening for Bob to get back into her life as a "friend" although the mention that she was keeping the key suggests that she was having a harder time letting go than she wanted to admit. Whatever the circumstances it appears that the letter was hand delivered because there are no postmarks but maybe that was common with international mail. I don't know. What I do know is that one of them kept the letter a long time and inadvertently passed it along to me in a book several years ago. I won't be parting with it anytime soon. That is, unless the 10 cent Queen Elizabeth stamp is worth some coin!
