letter 1930 Stockton, July 23 (THAINDIAN NEWS) A letter, which was written by a nun in the 1930’s, has finally been delivered after being in transit for 73 years. However the intended recipient of the letter would not get to read the contents of the letter, as she is no more. She died last year.

The letter was written by a San Francisco nun to ‘Miss Marie Fergone’ and was delivered at the Women’s Center of San Joaquin County at 620 North San Joaquin Street in Stockton. 70 years ago this very address used to be the location of a convent.

When the Women’s Center director – Joelle Gomez opened the letter, then she was surprised to realize that the letter was dated as the 23rd of December 1937. She was shocked as to why in the world the letter was in transit for 73 years.

“The first think I noticed was the postmark. I said ‘No way’. It said December 23, 1937. I kind of deliberated for a short while thinking should I open this? This is so curious. How could a letter be floating in the system for 73 years,” according to Women’s Center director Joelle Gomez.

In the letter the San Francisco nun has written to Marie, that she hopes that she would become a nun. However later the family of Marie revealed that Marie didn’t become a nun and instead she married and raised a family.
