(Complete with helpful hints and magnifying glass!)
"the hand-writing of your letter is so miserable, that I am not sure I have made it out. If I have it seems to me you are the same old sixpence you used to be, rather rusty, but a genuine piece."
~ Letter, William Ellery Channing to Thoreau, 5 March 1845
