These letters graciously have been shared with the Victorian Web by Eunice and Ron Shanahan; they have been taken from their website. The letters give an insight into the daily lives and concerns of 'ordinary' people without whom history would not exist. The letters are a wonderful example of how much history may be gleaned from such sources.
These ‘Letters from the Past’ are both from the 1770’s addressed to Francis Whichcote of Grantham, Lincolnshire.
