Etiquette of Yore :: Correspondence Card Strike Out?
Let's see a show of hands for those who read Matchbook Magazine! My hand is up & waving in the air (me, me, meeee!)
Interesting piece of correspondence card trivia in this issue's Dear Matchbook section. Have you ever gotten a correspondence card with the sender's name crossed out at the top? I haven't. Seems crazy, but in the days of frequent note writing, it was apparently a sign of a truly personal note or that your buddy actually wrote the note instead of their social secretary. Social secretary? Cool! Like the days of Ms. Pettigrew.
Also in this section, they clear up the Ms. vs Mrs. rule. I always get that confused!
