We all love reading a good love note, even if it is from the 1800’s. But this one in particular stands out to us simply because how genuine and honest this young man was!

Courting in 1865 was certainly different: it was more about what a man owned. I’m sure if I told a woman now about the crops I own and my straight teeth she would run the other way as fast as she could!

He certainly has a way with words, I wonder if it got him the wife he desired so desperately?
