US letter written in 1931 finally delivered in Maine

SKOWHEGAN, Maine -- A letter written by a schoolteacher in 1931 to her mother has finally been delivered — 83 years later.

Twenty-three-year-old Miriam McMichael sent the nine-page letter to Dollena McMichael. Both women have since died.

The letter was lost and only recently found at the post office in Pittsfield, Maine. Postal worker Michelle Rowell found it and tells the Morning Sentinel she knew it was old because of the 2-cent stamp.

The postmaster and town officials tracked down the family, and the letter is now in the hands of 69-year-old Ann MacMichael, Miriam's niece and Dollena's granddaughter. The spelling of the family name has changed.

MacMichael says the irony is that the writer apologizes for not writing sooner.
