Famous pen pals from history
Before the advent of the internet, the phone, and even the telegram, keeping in touch across long distances was a lot more difficult, and took a lot more time. Since every letter had to count, people would fill their pages with their deepest desires, most persistent worries, and profound observations, hoping to share as much as possible with the friend or loved one on the receiving end. Over the centuries, letter writing became an art form all its own, and people continued to choose paper and envelopes for their long-distance expression even after the invention of quicker modes of communication. Letters remained especially popular in the circles of artists and intellectuals, and many of the correspondences that have been collected, preserved, and sometimes published as literature provide an invaluable look into the hearts and interpersonal relationships of some of history's greatest minds. Read on to learn about some of history's famous pairs of pen pals.

Just 31 Photos of Prince Louis Being a Total Icon Over the Years
He just had the cutest moment with Princess Charlotte at the coronation, aww. Prince Louis is many things, including but not limited to: an icon, a legend, the moment, and one of only several royals who aren't incredibly problematic. But more than anything else, he's a child who knows how to take a good photo. And by that, I mean he sees a camera and immediately starts screaming into the void, which we can all appreciate. So naturally, the time has come to look back at Louis's life in picture, a chaotic and amazing journey that'll immediately make him your favorite royal. But first, some important biographical information: AHEM! Prince Louis was born on April 23, 2018 and is the third of Prince William and Kate Middleton's children (his older siblings are Prince George and Prince Charlotte). Louis's full name is actually Prince Louis Arthur Charles of Wales, and every single one of those monikers is steeped in meaning. Louis is actually Prince George's middle name and was also the first name of Lord Mountbatten, Prince Charles's godfather. Meanwhile, Arthur is a popular name among the royals (see: King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table) not to mention Prince Charles's middle name. And speaking of Charles, Louis's third name seems like a pretty clear reference to his grandfather, who happens to be King of England. Anyway, thanks to the fact that he's fourth in line to the throne after Prince William, Prince George, and Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis accompanies his parents and siblings (who he's now in school with, btw!) on a lot of royal engagements, leading to a lot of amazing photos.
