Love letters can be passionate, sad, goofy, serious, bittersweet, angry, tragic, embarrassing and even romantic. Over the years, some were saved, others were not. Love Letters, Lost is a collection of love letters salvaged from flea markets, garage sales, swap meets and internet auctions. Here Babbette Hines pairs them with vintage photographs of lovestruck young couples holding hands, laughing, dancing and mugging for the camera. In an age of e-mail greeting cards, this beguiling book is a reminder of the simple beauty of a tender letter. For those who might want to try writing one themselves, suggestions from a 1919 booklet on how to write love letters is included.
Irv and Mary Reiss (aka Dad and Mom) wrote this book as two letters per day for fifteen months from late 1943 through March 1945. Friends and relatives added more letters to bring the total to nearly 1,000. Virtually all of their letters ended with "I love you very very much" and "I miss you very very much." It's easy to empathize with their frustrations and anxieties about being separated and worried, especially with the birth and nurturing of their first child Stephen (aka me) in June 1944. This book title of From Burma With Love is an understatement. Irv Reiss served in the US Army from June 27, 1941 until September 17, 1945 for a total of 4 years, 2 months, and 20 days. Foreign service in India and Burma (Myanmar) was 1 year, 1 month, and 23 days. The foreign service in Burma was very intense and is the heart of this book -- hence the name, From Burma With Love. Irv was a labor officer along the Ledo Road from August 28, 1944 until December 11, 1944. His job was to hire and feed and pay several thousand native laborers (and a few elephants) to help build that road from Ledo, India to Mongyu, Burma. Read his letter of October 7, 1944.
