Love Letter or Hate Mail? – A Curiosity..

This is another curious love letter, er, hate letter.  Published in a collection of leaflets in 1850, I found this in the Library of Congress’s Memory Project.  Supposedly, this ingenious love letter fell from the pocket of an athletic suitor, and the pubisher chose to publish it – kind of like a school child reading note OUT LOUD in class.  Or, of course, this was just written for fun!
