Notable Folks, Notable Notes

LONDON (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Notable folks write notable notes. is an archive of letters, notes, telegrams, and postcards written by famous figures.

This includes a scathing critique from Albert Einstein, an expletive-filled memo from Hunter S. Thompson, and a note from South Park creator Matt Stone defending the crude and crass humor of one of his movies.

Some notes are from regular Joes from a time long ago.

There’s one from a Civil War Union soldier who’s guilty conscience got the best of him after taking two loaves of bread instead of one at a bread line during the war.

His guilt led him to send a letter to the Secretary of the Treasury apologizing for the theft, including $1 for the bread he took more than 30 years after the Civil War ended.

Creator Shaun Usher gathers the “fascinating” bits of written history because he feels the correspondence is “worthy of a wider audience.”
