Original Message LA POSTE has finally delivered a letter that was posted in 1877, handing it over to the 80-year-old great-grand daughter of the intended recipient.

Thérèse Pailla, who lives in Trélon in the Nord where the letter was destined, said she was as surprised as the postman when they realised the letter’s age.

Mrs Pailla told La Voix du Nord that she knew little about her family’s history but the letter refers to an order of yarn from a factory that was once owned by them.

The author, Amand Pailla (1820-1897), had presciently asked for a confirmation that it had been received.
