We regret to inform you that today is Opposite Day! To celebrate, we’d like to share a letter from the collection, written (how else?) backwards.
This letter was written November 8, 1878, from “George” to his brother “Jim” while George was recovering from a steamboat accident near that almost took off his right arm. George tells his brother that he regrets that he cannot write a longer letter, but he is writing with his left hand and thus backwards.
