A British family discovered a letter while cleaning the house, and based on the handwriting and style, it could have been written in the early 20th century.

A resident of the British town of Preston shared the discovery made by her 14-year-old son Lucas in a Facebook group.

The teenager was removing old fireplace tiles after the TV fell onto the structure, damaging the decor.

During the process, the young man came across an old letter with no date, but its appearance suggested that the message could be from a century ago.

The paper had yellowed with time, but the ink had not faded, and Don could read everything written in the letter:

“My love, who belongs only to me, will you try to come to me every morning?

“But don’t tell anyone about it; let it be a secret just for us. Don’t forget, my dear,” the message said.

Apparently, the author of the letter was in love with a married woman who couldn’t or didn’t want to leave her husband.

The possibility that the letter was written a century ago is also suggested by the fact that, according to Don, no trams have been running in the town for over 80 years, and Ronald suggested meeting his beloved at the tram stop.

Commenters who saw Lucas and his mother’s old find pointed out that the handwriting belonged to a man.

According to some Facebook users, Ronald might not have been very educated, and someone wrote the message for him.
