Comments: The letters of "Junius," originally appearing in the "Public Advertiser" from November of 1768 to January of 1772, represent one of the great mysteries of English literature. No author ever claimed credit for these letters, though they were ascribed to every prominent Whig of the period... Sir Philip Francis (1740-1818), who was a clerk in the War Office when the "Junius" letters were written, is generally considered to be the mystery writer, though he denied this association to the end of his life.

Hello Naomi and Michele. A BIG thank you for your quick delivery of both President Wilson's TLS and Edith Bolling Wilson's letter to Mrs. Bainbridge Colby. They are both magnificent! My eyes actually welled up after seeing and reading them. You're talking to an old west Texas boy who grew up reading American History at age 8. I am 48 now and I still love it! Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. You have made my day! - Tex
