Rebus letter from 1859.

This charming letter is an example of a rebus, writing that uses pictures as words or parts of words.  We have no documentation as to how it ended up in LaBudde Special Collections, but it’s so unusual and so well done we’re certainly glad to give it a home.  Try your luck at deciphering it!  If you get frustrated or simply don’t like puzzles, here’s our solution.
