Famous quotes containing the word letters:

    Busy replying to letters from divers office-seekers. They come by the dozens.
    Rutherford Birchard Hayes (1822–1893)

    The entire merit of a man can never be made known; nor the sum of his demerits, if he have them. We are only known by our names; as letters sealed up, we but read each other’s superscriptions.
    Herman Melville (1819–1891)

    Frances Burney (1752–1840)
